Abstract

This chapter describes the types of tumor and the criteria for treating them with radiation therapy alone, radiation therapy combined with surgery, radiation therapy combined with chemotherapy, and radiation therapy combined with both chemotherapy and surgery. The different protocols available for the different types of tumor will be described, including the different order in which they may be given. The side-effects of radiation therapy and chemotherapy are described as well as the long-term oral complications from both types of therapy.
