Diagnosed with tumour, kindly suggest

My 24 years old nephew was diagnosed with tumor in stomach in July. He was treated with chemotherapy for five session at Royal Marsden hospital in London. Unfortunately this treatment could not stop the growth of the tumor. Doctors in Mumbai performed a succesful surgery and managed to pull out soccor ball size tumors intact. I need to find the details of this tumor, doctors claim it could be desmoplastic . We need to find ways to avoid re occurance of the same, where he should go for the post surgery care. Reports have been sent to Tata cancer hospital for understanding the details of the tumor. Need guidence on the next step to be taken
