Hello, My father aged 74 recently had back pain and constipation. The doctor advised for a Ultrascan , the reports of which mentioned "There are multiple conglomerate enlarged hypoechoic soft tissue mass lesions in the para-aortic, aorto-caval and bilateral iliac regions, largest measuring about 8.0 x 5.4 cm. may represent enlarged lymph nodes. Internal vascularity is noted within. No calcifications." He does not have diabetes or blood pressure. He's been losing weight for the past few months and is experiencing pain in the lower back and the genital area. There are no lumps under his arms, rectal area or neck Now the doctors are assuming Lymphoma. At that age I doubt he can handle chemo/radiation therapy. if left untreated how long can he live peacefully? Regards, Pronto
