Hi, Has the patient lost weight during this period? has he lost his appetite? Considering his age and history it could be a malignant growth but that can be confirmed only with biopsy..

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good day
It seems like a tumor, just to be safe. Best to get the biopsy done. Mostly a Surgery may be required to help him with the problem. As of now Let him take only semisolid to liquid diet with more milk and less spice.
