Welcome to HCM.
For blocked food pipe it is necessary to do a surgery and pass a tube across the tumour, so that food may reach the stomach. No major attempt should be made to remove the tumour, which might deteriorate his condition. What he needs is to make arrangements for his sustenance without causing much discomfort to him.
No drastic measures of treatment are required.
Wishing your father all the best.
