Survival study and treatment strategy for second primary tumors in the oral cavity in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma after definitive radiation
Head & Neck, 05/04/2012
Song M et al. – Clinical TNM stage was an independent prognostic factor that influenced the treatment outcome. The data indicate that the survival of patients with second primary tumors (SPTs) in the oral cavity can be improved by modifying treatment strategy, and that surgery is preferred when SPTs are diagnosed at an earlier stage.
