Hello, I'm writing on behalf of my 56-year-old uncle, who suffers from recurrent head and neck cancer. His cancer started at the base of the tongue but has now spread to his lungs. He has six small tumors on a recent PET scan. He's currently living in Mexico but plans to come to the States soon once he's issued a visa. They said he wasn't a candidate for immunotherapy in Mexico, but I'm not sure what kind of testing determined that. Do you know if any treatment options exist? The doctor in Mexico suggested he should receive palliative care and enjoy the remainder of his life. My uncle wants to keep on fighting to the end. What are some suggestions? I can provide the images upon request, thanks.
