My father is presently suffering from pharyngeal cancer. Radiation therapy carried out for 35 days. But not recovered. Please advise.

If there is residual disease after completion of radiotherapy, a biopsy may be required from the residual disease. As you father has already received RT, re-irradiation is not an option. Surgery can be recommended if the disease is localized as per surgical assessment. If cancer has spread to other organs, palliative chemotherapy is suggested.
