Moderately differentiated squamous cell carsinoma

Doctor,┬áThis is about my father. He is suffering from squamous cell carsinoma. The doctors suggested for radiotherapy. As he is 75 year old they can’t do operation. Please tell, will the swelling on lips and gums reduce after this treatment. And how long it should continue? Will he be all right.
