In brief: Chemoradiation

I would recommend proceeding with a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.
These tumors have a high likelihood of recurring. Chemoradiation gives the best chance to minimize that risk. Despite stories of how bad chemotherapy and radiation can be, these are 'life saving medicines' and 'healing beams.' I would recommend giving yourself the best chances you can.
