I will use two recent cases to illustrate the following four points: 1. That high doses of irradiation, though not a desirable prelude to surgery, are not an absolute contraindication. 2. That the final criterion of radiation response is not measured by exfoliative cytology, but by the length of time the patient lives without further evidence of tumour formation. 3. That planned combined therapy ab initio is less traumatic for both patient and surgeon than salvage surgery after failed irradiation. 4. That teamwork involving radiotherapist and surgeon is essential for success.
