I am trying to find out if someone who has a has which may be a lymphoma and she is delusional that she does not have this. Does the patient have the right to refuse treatment? Should the patient be committed involuntariy and have a medical guardian assigned to consent for the treatment? If the tumor is malignant may the patient refuse treatment for this? Can the court order them to have treatment?
