It simply means that your uncle is suffering from cancer of the part of the mouth below the tongue (called the floor of mouth). Squamous cell carcinoma is the most common cancer to occur in the mouth. You should immediately consult a cancer surgeon and start treatment. If it has not spread to other parts of the body then the treatment would be first surgery which may or may not be followed by radiotherapy.All the best.
