In brief: It depends

It depends on the staging.
Surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy are modalities that we use to treat oropharyngeal cancer. Whether one needs chemotherapy first prior to surgery then surgery or chemo and radiation only -or surgery and chemo/radiation etc- all will depend on the stage. Multiple disciplines/specialties many times are required.
