Need answers about tonsil cancer and what to expect

My husband and I recently discovered he has squamous cell carcinoma tonsil cancer with only one lymph node showing cancer, its on his right side.  Last week his ENT  took out his tonsils.  After his biopsy and scans the doctor told him he needed just radiation, no surgery  or chemo.  I'm scared this treatment plan is not enough.   Everything I've seen regarding this type of cancer is surgery and chemo.  I'm not sure if he's been staged yet.  My husband has kept me out of dark on most of this which is making it  worse.  My father died from cancer last year and he's trying to protect me.  Our next appointment is next week and than I'm not sure about to expect.  I need to know whats next, I'm completely lost.  Any feedback please
