Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in.

It appears that your dad has got a high-grade lymphoma on the background of a pre-existing low-grade lymphoma. Probably the low grade lymphoma was undetected earlier.

Though this type of lymphoma is potentially curable, with his age and other problems like diabetes, it will be difficult to deliver proper doses of chemotherapy. This could compromise the outcome. Treatment is quite intensive and can cause serious problems like infections.

In delhi/NCR there are various options available. Few options are AIIMS, Fortis Noida (Dr XXXXXXX Singhal), Batra Hospital (Dr K Medhi), XXXXXXX XXXXXXX Cancer Hospital (Dr DC Doval) and many more.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer any followup queries.
