Primary radiation therapy for salivary gland cancer

General

Radiation therapy targeted towards the primary tumor. Regional lymph nodes are also irradiated for regional metastases.

Depending on the localization of the primary tumor and/or T stage, regional lymph nodes may have to be irradiated due to high probability of microscopic disease.

This therapy is given primarily to patients with inoperable tumors, or preoperatively to render tumor more accessible for surgery.

The target volume is adapted individually.

Indication

  • Salivary gland cancer

Goal

  • Eliminate tumor
  • Reduce tumor volume
  • Remove or limit extent of regional metastases
