abstract

  • In this population-based cohort of older adults with HNSCC, the rates of acute toxicities and feeding tube use in patients receiving CTRT were considerable. It is possible that for certain older patients, the potential benefit of adding chemotherapy to RT does not outweigh the harms of this combined-modality therapy.
