I suggest you need to get a triphasic CECT of the abdomen to appropriately diagnose the problem. As pointed out it could be a liver cancer on a background of cirrhosis with evidence of portal venous thrombosis. He will also require a bone scan to rule out metastatic disease. Depending on general condition and liver parameters he may be considered for appropriate treatment.

Your father needs further work up. The CT scan report indicates long term liver damage probably due to alcohol or hepatitis. The doctors need to prove the diagnosis and proceed. PET may not be the best investigation at present. Please consult a surgical oncologist.
