Radiotherapy and surgery, used singly or in combination, are the only curative approaches to the treatment of mouth cancer. Preoperative irradiation of advanced cancer is now being evaluated, and shows much promise. This may permit operation in previously inoperable cases, make less extensive operative procedures feasible in others, and possibly decrease the incidence of cancer spread during surgery. However, while surgery often can salvage radiation failures, the reverse is seldom true.
