PLEASE HELP-IS IT A TUMOR AGAIN?

Hello
My friend who is a male of 24 yrs was diagnosed of DSRCT last year(march 2009) and underwnt surgery where it was removed and was follwed with chemo and radiation trtmnts..which is still goin on... and subsequent scans came clear by God's grace.
recently he witnessed blood in his urine due to doc recommndd for another scan.. and following is the report.

"EVIDENCE OF ENLARGED LYMPH NODES ARE NOTED IN THE LOWER PARAAORTIC REGION TOWARDS LEFT OF MIDLINE CLOSE TO BIFURCATION OF AORTA.THE MAX SIZE IS 19MMX11MM.
TWO  WELL DEIFINED T1 HYPOINTENSE AREAS HYOERINTENSE ON T1 AND STIR ARE SEEN IN LEFT COMMON ILIAC REGION.WITH IRREGULAR ENHANCEMENT  ON CONTRAST ADMINISTRATION AND WITH RESTRICTED DIFFUSION ON DWI.(ENLARGED LYMPH NODES SIZE  2.6CMX2.1CM AND 2CMX1.5CM.THERE IS EVIDENCE OF CENTRAL DISC BULGE AT L-4 L-5 WITH INDENTATION OF THECAL SAC"

The doc said nothing to worry..and she wants to observe its metabolic activity for anothr 3 months and thn tak another scan and meanwhile she will continue with chemo..we all are really worried..kindly giv some advice
