No Intervention: no irradiation
Patients within this arm only receive curative intended radical surgery
Active Comparator: Radiation
Patients receive radiation within 6 weeks after curative intended radical surgery.
Radiation: Radiation therapy
Patients receive radiation within 6 weeks after surgery. At primary tumour site and involved lymph node level a total dose of 59.4 Gy in 33 fractions within 45 days is scheduled according to the rules of ICRU report 50.
- Primary study object: overall survival [ Time Frame: 9 years ]The objective of the clinical study will be to investigate two different patient groups (irradiated/unirradiated) with pT1/2 primary and verification of a singular ipsilateral lymph node metastasis in parallel design in order to evaluate the possible benefit of radiation therapy. The following null hypothesis forms the basis of the present study: Radiation therapy will have no influence on the overall survival in patients with pT1/2, pN1 primary tumor. First patients will be observed for 9 years, last patient in will be followed-up for 5 years.
- Time to occurrence of local relapse [ Time Frame: 2, 3 and 6 months; 1 year to 9 years ]Recruitment phase will be 4 years and follow up 5 years. First patients will be observed following the schedule above for 9 nine years, last patients will be observed for a minimum of 5 years.
- Time to lymphatic metastasis [ Time Frame: 2, 3 and 6 months, 1 year to 9 years ]Recruitment phase will be 4 years and follow up 5 years. First patients will be observed following the schedule above for 9 nine years, last patients will be observed for a minimum of 5 years.
- Time to occurence of distant metastasis [ Time Frame: 2,3,6 months and 1 year to 9 years annually ]Recruitment phase will be 4 years and follow up 5 years. First patients will be observed following the schedule above for 9 nine years, last patients will be observed for a minimum of 5 years.
- Quality of Life [ Time Frame: after 6 months, 1 year and annually till end of study ]QLQ 30 and HN35 Questionnaire will be assessed after 6 months and annually Course of provisional and definite orofacial rehabilitation will be assessed in each meeting
