    Adjuvant Systemic Therapy

    Stage IA
    1. Adjuvant chemotherapy is not recommended.
    Stage IB
    1. Adjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy is not recommended for routine use. A postoperative multimodality evaluation, including a consultation with a medical oncologist, is recommended to assess benefits and risks of adjuvant chemotherapy for each patient. Factors other than tumor stage to consider when making a recommendation for adjuvant chemotherapy are outlined after the adjuvant systemic therapy section of this guideline.
    Stages IIA/B and IIIA
    1. Adjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy is recommended.

    Adjuvant Radiation Therapy

    Stages IA/B and IIA/B
    1. Adjuvant radiation therapy is not recommended.
    Stage IIIA (N2)
    1. Adjuvant radiation therapy is not recommended for routine use. A postoperative multimodality evaluation, including a consultation with a radiation oncologist, is recommended to assess benefits and risks of adjuvant radiotherapy for each patient with N2 disease.
