I want to know how serious is my grandfather's cancer. I do not have a lot of details, and I am away from home. He had throat cancer 15 years back. Now from the past two months, he was having breathing problems and extreme weakness, so the doctors did a tracheotomy to help with it. Now, we got his biopsy report which states cancer. Please let me know more details about it. What are the next steps to be taken?
His biopsy report reads biopsy from the post-cricoid region show multiple grayish white small bits. The section includes cells showing squamous cell carcinoma. The section also shows focal areas of necrosis. No specific evidence of any muscular, lymphovascular or perineural invasion is observed in the provided biopsy. The impression is well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma.

Thank you for replying. He had chemotherapy 15 years back to treat the throat cancer he had. Is it the recurrence of same cancer or something else? As per my current information, other tests are yet to be conducted. I will get back on this as soon as I have more information.
