Answer

Answer

Tumors in this stage can be > 5-10 cm and have a high risk of recurrence and potential metastases

For patients with resectable disease, surgery followed by radiation therapy with or without adjuvant chemotherapy or surgery alone is recommended; preoperative radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or chemoradiation prior to surgery are alternatives in select clinical situations

Patients with unresectable disease should be treated with definitive radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or definitive chemoradiation [2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
