Abstract

Ninety-six patients with cancer of the tonsillar region in all stages were studied to compare full-course radiation therapy with surgical salvage to planned combined radiation and surgery. Full-course radiation therapy was effective in controlling T1 and T2 tumors without neck node involvement. Combined therapy was much more effective in treating T3 tumors with neck node disease. Patients with T4 tumors did poorly regardless of therapy.
