Lymphoma

Overview

Lymphomas represent a diverse group of cancers, that are divided into 2 general categories: 1) Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and 2) Hodgkin lymphoma. The majority of lymphomas are classified as Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, while Hodgkin lymphoma comprises 10% of lymphomas. The signs and symptoms and aggressiveness of lymphoma can vary greatly , from one patient to another. Possible symptoms can include swollen lymph nodes, fevers, weight loss, night sweats. Once a diagnosis of lymphoma is made, blood testing and imaging are sometimes done to determine the extent of the lymphoma.

Treatment Options

Treatment for lymphoma must be individualized for each patient, and is based on many factors, which can include: patient symptoms, patient age, lab testing, pathology results, and imaging studies. If treatment is required, radiation therapy, prescription medications, and/or chemotherapy may be considered.
