Remembering that there was very significant time delay in the diagnosis and primary treatment of his cancer, combined with the fact the prognosis of this type of cancer was already far from satisfactory, and along with the fact that a more deforming but more thorough radical lymph node neck dissection surgery and/or other co-treatments (radiation/chemo) were not chosen to be performed at the same time, this recurrence is even less surprising. Unfortunately, this tells me what I had originally believed would be the case before "surgery" was surprisingly just recently announced as the treatment he would undergo for the recurrence. His recurrence/spread is now obviously beyond the reasonable scope of scalpel removal. The chemotherapy and radiation therapy must now be considered a desperation salvage approach in hopes of palliation and improved quality of life.
Very sad

Terrible news
