In brief: Surgery,XRad,Chemo.

The three consistent modalities of treatment for these tumors are surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.
These can be given alone or in combination. Surgery and chemotherapy, like Cisplatin or 5-fluorouracil or surgery and radiation are given for locally advanced disease, while local disease gets surgery and radiation. Advanced/metastatic disease is treated by palliative chemo. Like paclitaxel.
