Radiation Therapy

Surgery combined with irradiation may offer the best results for deeply infiltrating tumors. Pre-operative radiation has been widely used, and sometimes is curative in itself. Radiotherapy is also very useful in the palliative regimen and offers relief from pain.

Interstitial irradiation, radon seed implantation, and external radiation therapy may be employed singly, in combination, or with surgery.
