I had seen your report which says mucoid adenocarcinoma. This could have originated from some primary cancer elsewhere.
He needs further images, probably a PET-CT scan which can throw some light on the primary. I would suggest you to do additional tests for confirming the site of a primary malignancy and start on chemotherapy accordingly.
P.S. I am a medical oncologist from Chennai. If facilities are not available in Vizag, can you come to Chennai for treatment?

Patient replied :

We had the entire scanned report this morning. Please see this
