Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
ca nasopharynx can be treated by chemoradiation with adjuvant chemotherapy. many time during radiation if parotid gland received more dose dry mouth may be a complication. Hope you have treated by intensity modulated radiotherapy. your present problem is little bit contradictory. swallowing problem may be due to lack of saliva but continuous saliva hard to explain. some form of mouth wash may be helpful. consult your radiation oncologist.take care.
