B Cell Lymphoma Emedicine
Pathologic diagnosis....Resected thymus shows reactive b cell hyperplasia vs low grade b cell lympho proliferative disorder. Is this lymphoma?
Could be...: Certain lymphomas grow so slow that sometimes it is difficult for the pathologist to make the call between malignant or not. I suspect they may do additional work on the specimen and that your doctor will evaluate you further with labs, additional scans or another biopsy. If you have not seen a hematologist, maybe this is the time. Don't panic, just follow up his/her lead. Best to you. ...Read more
T-cell NHL: The prognosis for t-cell non-hodgkin's lymphoma (nhl) vs. B-cell nhl depends on multiple factors, but in general t-cell nhl has a worse prognosis. One reason is that b-cell, cd20+ nhl can be treated with the anti-cd20 monoclonal antibody Rituximab in addition to chemotherapy. We currently don't have such an effective, low toxicity antibody (biologic treatment) for t-cell nhl. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Mantle cell lymphoma: Is a less common b-cell disease in the non-hodgkin's lymphoma group. It tends to be advanced stage when diagnosed, and can have a propensity to involve both the gut and skin. About 20% of cases behave indolently, and treatment is quite effective at diagnosis. Late relapses are common, and treatment is more challenging the second time around. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not a common term: Diffuse b cell lymphoma is by definition an aggressive lymphoma which has the ability to spread rapidly if not treated. It is a "bad actor". I assume this term may be referring to a lymphoma that has already spread a good deal before being diagnosed. Even so, these lymphomas are often treatable and can be cured in the majority of cases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
T cell lymphoma?: I think you mean t cell lymphoma, a cancer of t cells or thymocytes that can cause lymph gland enlargement, low blood counts, fevers, and sweats. A particular subtype is gamma-delta (the greek letter for d) hepatosplenic lymphoma, which could also be what you're referring to. A good source of information is the leukemia & lymphoma society of america's website. ...Read more

What is the prognosis of stage 4 cancer non hodgkins lymphoma b cell with walderstoms IgM protein 4000?
Fairly good: We have good treatments for nonhodgkins lymphoma such that a fairly large proportion of patients are cured and can live a normal life. At least we can keep them alive for many years with the use of chemotherapy along with a biologic agent/immunotherapy drug called rituximab. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
50%: However, there are numerous features about an individual lymphoma that point to worse or better survival for that individual. And survival is dependent on treatment as well; the use of the monoclonal antibody, rituximab, greatly impacts on survival. Finally, the medical community does not equate survival with cure, so we tend to talk about five year survival and ten year survival. ...Read more

Best first-line treatment for mantle cell lymphoma now: high doses of ara-c+rituximab and autologous sc transplant, or rituximab+bendamustine?
There is no: Definitive answer to your question. Studies have compared the strategies you mention. The high dose ara-c arm was closed because it was difficult to mobilize stem cells for transplant after these regimens. Bendamustine-r is a good program, and many centers would consolidate a good response with an autograft. ...Read more
