    What happens if lymph node cancer is left untreated

    What happens if one chooses to leave lymph node cancer untreated because radiotherapy and chemotherapy are not seen as options?

    Hi,

    As any malignant tumor, it can grow locally and can also go to other sites through blood or lymphatic systems and produce metastasis.
