Lymph Nodes in the Male Retroperitoneum and Pelvis

h9991561_001.jpg

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.
