Oral Cancer Survival Best with Surgery First--Study

ChemotherapyAdvisor continues to be a superb source of cancer-related news.  A study reported by JAMA Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, under the direction of Dr. Steven Chinn of the University of Michigan, retrospectively evaluated 19 patients who had surgically treated advanced oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma.  The study groups were divided according to chemoradiotherapy first and then surgery and surgery first and radiotherapy.  Statistical analysis showed a significantly greater five year survival rate for those patients who were treated with resection surgery first.
