The time-dose-volume relationship of external radiation is crucial for radiation therapy of head and neck cancers. Therefore, locoregional control is not easily achieved with standard radiotherapy for extended tumor volumes. Salvage therapy for locoregional recurrence; after surgery and radiotherapy, is even more difficult and often disappointing. So far, chemotherapy has not proved to be very effective, either in combination with radiotherapy for advanced disease or in the treatment for recurrence.
