Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
Hi there,
Radiation remains an excellent modality of treatment. In case surgery is not feasible, I'm sure radiation would provide good relief of symptoms and would be offered if he is not too unwell to take it. Once he improves or according to the treating oncologists team, there may be a role of chemotherapy as well. Take care, Regards
