Diagnosed with ventricular lymphoma. Removed mass. Details about this cancer?

good morning I m a nurse that works as a health coach for a major insurance company. I work with the DDD population. One of my member s has his mother as his primary care giver. she was just Dx d with ventricular lymphoma . They did the surgery and the results are malignant. She is extremly scared because of her son.. I am primarily a behavioral helath specialist and know very little about cancer besides doing continuous care for hospice which is not a good reference at this point. Can you eplain about this cancer to me. They removed the mass from her groin to her leg from the crease. The incision is about 6 inches.

probably the diagnosis is not mentioned correctly. can you please mention the detail pathology report. I doubt this is lymphoma or some other disease. has she got any swelling in any other area like armpit, neck, opposite groin. even it came as lymphoma detail imaging like chest , abdomen CT scan to be done. if necessary bone marrow biopsy to be done for proper staging. then treatment will be planned accordingly. do not worry. lymphoma has got good treatment option.
