Thanks for your query.
Your partner had undergone biopsy of the inguinal lymph nodes very recently and has undergone backytherapy 3 years back.
I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on his problems.
1) What was the original pathology for which he was treated with backytherapy 3 years back?
2) Since how long did he have enlarged lymph nodes in groin.?
3) Since how long he has been on supra-pubic catheter to drain his bladder.?

With limited information that you have provided I can only say that he has developed secondary metastasis in inguinal lymph nodes and he has radiation cystitis and urethritis or stricture of the urethra.

Please do write in detail about his previous illness and treatment offered 3 years back so as to make me comments on his illness.
Thanks and Regards,
