In brief: Information

Generally the treatment is surgery.
If the disease has spread, still surgery is the treatment of choice if it can be done. Sometimes radiation can help with pain. Sometimes interferon can also help. There may be more drugs in the future.

Surgical excision is usually the preferred method of treatment but many other options exist based on the extent and location of disease.
