AbstractSummary Early-stage nasopharyngeal carcinoma is a highly curable disease. Owing to the high radiosensitivity of nasopharyngeal carcinoma and the small volume of tumor in early-stage disease, definitive radiotherapy alone has been the mainstay of treatment. Modern radiotherapy techniques aim to further improve disease control and reduce toxicities. In this chapter, we discuss the clinical data for radiotherapy in different eras, important prognostic factors and the role of chemotherapy in the treatment of early-stage nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
