Yes, more w/u needed: Yes, low grade b cell lymphoproliferative disorder a.K.A lymphoma is a type of blood cancer. There are many types of b cell lymphoproliferative disorder from the low grade/less agressive to high grade/more agressive. Here, i think, more work up needs to be done- particularly to classify what type of lymphoproliferative disorder this is and also how much tumor burden and prognostication. D/w md.
