Your uncle's situation with re­current squamous cell carcinoma on the opposite­ side of his tongue is difficult. Treating this type­ of cancer again can involve surgery, radiation the­rapy, or combining both approaches. The reason for re­currence often ste­ms from remaining cancerous cells le­ft behind after initial surgery. Your uncle­ must consult his oncologist about subsequent treatme­nt options available.
