You can add to, subtract from or intersect a mask selection.

To add an area to the previous selection you should choose the Additive mode (instead of the Normal mode) in the Options palette of the mask tool.

To subtract an area from the previous selection you should choose the Subtractive mode in the Options palette of the mask tool.

Use the Overlap mode if you want to obtain a complex selection, an overlapped area of two original selections.
