Dear sir, I need to know the stage of the disease to begin with to advise you correctly. However, the best line of treatment for tongue cancer is surgery when feasible. As he has already received chemo and RT, the next line if chemo will not act well. Please get assessed by a cancer surgeon to assess the present stage. If the cancer surgeon says that surgery is impossible, then you need to consider other options like chemo.
