I really don't know why it isn't being treated. Maybe your FIL is afraid of the treatment and isn't telling your husband everything. Or maybe he needs a new doctor.
Last year my fil had a stroke. He knew he was having a stroke because he had double vision and was numb on one side of his body. He called his doctor from home and told him his symptoms over the phone. Doctor said yes you are having a stroke get to the hospital right away. My fil decides to take an aspirin, take a shower, shave, have something to eat, then had my mil drive him to the hospital three hours later. Thankfully he took an aspirin and is fine. They didn't call and tell anyone what happened until the next day.

Your father-in-law is 74 and has two kids ages 13 and 15? Wow, that's impressive. Maybe he doesn't want to have the treatment because sometimes that can cause impotency. I'm not trying to be mean, just making an observations.
