    My dad was diagnosed with cancer on 1st of April, we were shocked and go to the other hospital for complete biopsy and MRI etc. Finally reports came with tumor of lower gingiva which is not spread to Lymph nodes. Completed surgery on 24th April. Pathology report describe it T4aN0M0 type without involvement of nodes. He suggest for radiation. Dad is recovering and on liquid diets and waiting for the radiation.
