Suggest treatment for throat cancer

Hi, my brother is a patient at the ENT section of the Johannesburg General hospital. he has been diagnosed with throat cancer. They have inserted a tube into his throat for oxygen. He cannot eat and has been there for a while. He is in terrible pain and seldom receives medication. He basically is left to himself. What is the possible solution to his disease.

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
Your brother has throat cancer. Treatment depends on stage of cancer.
In early stage surgery is helpful.
In late stage surgery is not helpful and chemotherapy and radiotherapy remains the treatment options.
Consult your doctor and start treatment according to stage and spread off cancer.
