Hi and welcome to HCM,thank you for your query.
You said that there was verified adenocarcinoma again,not infection and in this case he needs surgery definitely unless there are some contrtaindications such as liver metastases or other site metastases. so always when there is evidence of recurence of malignant disease,it should be removed surgically followed by chemo.
Wish you good health. Regards
