Hello Neil, my husband had SCC of the soft palate with the uvula (the little dangly thing at the back of your throat) as the primary. In his case they removed the soft palate (and some other areas, like right tonsil). By doing this it gave him a very nasal voice, sounding like he had a cleft palate. He has a prosthetic device that he wears to sound normal. Wondering how this all relates to your problem? Hoping you find an answer soon!
