In brief: Depends upon stage

Early stage disease is usually treated by surgical resection.
More advanced disease is usually treated by combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy and stage 4 disease is usually treated with chemotherapy alone or consideration of hospice for those with significantly far advanced disease.
