Primary treatment for this cancer, regardless of body site, is surgical removal with clean margins. This can be challenging in the head and neck region due to this tumour's tendency spread along nerve tracts. Adjuvant or palliative radiotherapy is commonly given following surgery. Chemotherapy is used for metastatic disease.
