Management of Mouth or Oral Cavity Cancers

Early-stage carcinomas of the oral cavity are usually treated with an operation.  Postoperative radiation therapy is given for indications such as close margins, extracapsular extension of the cancer in lymph nodes, perineural invasion, vascular space invasion, and multiple lymph nodes involved with cancer. Patients with advanced oral cavity cancers are usually treated with surgery followed by postoperative radiation therapy.
