The management of oropharyngeal carcinoma represents an increasing clinical challenge, because of its rising incidence, particularly in younger patients as a result of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, and because significant technological advances have occurred in radiotherapy and surgery over the last 10 years that have increased treatment options for patients, with little robust evidence yet of their relative merits. As a result, there is a lack of clinical consensus on the optimum treatm...

Background The single most distressing symptom for patients with advanced esophageal cancer is dysphagia. Amongst the more effective treatments for relief of dysphagia is insertion of a self-expanding metal stent (SEMS). It is possible that the addition of a palliative dose of external beam radiotherapy may prolong the relief of dysphagia and provide additional survival benefit. The ROCS trial will assess the effect of adding palliative radiotherapy after esophageal stent insertion.

Advanced radiotherapy techniques, such as intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), may significantly benefit cervical cancer patients, in terms of reducing late toxicity and potentiating dose escalation. Given the steep dose gradients around the planning target volume (PTV) with IMRT planning, internal movement of organs during treatment may cause geographical miss of the target and unnecessary organs at risk (OAR) inclusion into high dose regions. It is therefore important to consider the exten...
