Lymph Nodes in the Male Retroperitoneum and Pelvis
Lymph nodes found in the male retroperitoneum and pelvis are part of the
lymphatic system, which carries fluid, nutrients, and waste material between
the body tissues and the bloodstream. Lymph nodes are connected by a network of
channels that run throughout the body.
Cancer may spread through
lymph nodes to distant parts of the body.
