Abstract. The paper is dedicated to guideline directions in the treatment of the oropharynx cancer and contain information about results of treatment of the 65 patients with recurrences (60%) and rudimentary tumors (40%). We try to describe the problem questions of scope of surgery, reconstruction, and access in surgery. In results: the overall survival in group with rudimentary tumors consist 68,4% in relation to patients with recurrences after chemoradiation ― 50,2%. And tumors with location on the soft palate have worse prognosis (o.s. ― 30%) in relation to side wall oropharynx tumors (o.s. ― 64,6%) and base of tongue tumors (57,2%).
Key words: oropharynx cancer, treatment, recurrence, rudimentary tumors, overall survival, tumors location.
