4 cycle chemotherapy is incomplete treatment of cancer of buccal mucosa. this is called as neoadjuvant chemotherapy. i suggest to meet any onco-surgeon/surgical oncologist to show him for feasiblity of surgery(COMMANDO) , Once you gone through surgery ,you require adjuvant radiotherapy(radiation) as per surgical pathology report. so my advise to you is first meet cancer surgeon.

see u. how your relative get well soon.
