Treatment of oral cancer

The goal of treatment is to establish locoregional control, prevent problems from local and regional tumor growth, as well as prevent recurrence.

Treatment is intended to maintain optimal conditions for function and anatomical appearance.

The available treatment modalities are mainly surgery and radiation therapy (5). Treatment often consists of a combination of these. 

Chemotherapy is used to a lesser degree, but regimens for concomitant radiation and chemotherapy are in development.

Age (>70 years) is not a contraindication for treatment, but the patient must be in good physical and mental condition (14).
