Patients with low-risk pathologic T1-T2N0 squamous cell cancer of the oral tongue who undergo partial glossectomy and elective neck dissection without receiving postoperative radiation have a greater than expected rate of neck failure, and contralateral recurrence accounts for 40% of cases. Failure occurs predominantly in patients who have primary tumors >4 mm in thickness, and only approximately 33% of patients who develop a neck recurrence undergo successful salvage.
