In brief: It depends

For larger primary tumors and disease that spreads to the neck you might need dual modality treatment.
This means surgery + radiation or radiation + chemotherapy. You will need to have a detailed discussion with your ENT and your oncologist in order to reach an informed decision. There are pros and cons to each treatment option, and they will help you w/ your decision.
