My father was treated for Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Anterior Tongue with Radio, Chemo and Brachy therapy.
However, the cancer has recurred and extends to the base of the tongue touching the epiglottis. The size is 5*4*3cms.
A couple of doctors say nothing is possible and we have to just treat the symptoms but the main doctor suggests surgery even though it is risky.
What choice do we have - Should we treat the symptoms or try surgery in spite of the risk?
Is IMRT an option? Is there some other option?
