Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
Itis hard to predict but if there is no sign of tumor now after radioth then prognosis is favorable. If there was lymph node or vessel infiltration then there is a high risk of recurence. all you can do is to do frequent check ups and report any new sign and symptoms.
Wish you good health. Regards
