Diffuse Large Cell Lymphoma Symptoms
Maybe: In general we don't think of diffuse large b cell lymphoma (dlbcl) effecting brain function. However, many patients tell us of symptoms of a "fog" like feeling either before treatment (disease-related?) or after ("chemobrain"). Reasons are likely multifactorial and can include stress, financial concerns, depression, and disease biology. This is being actively studied by a variety of groups. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Are lymphocyte rich hodgkin's lymphoma and nodular lymphocyte predominant hodgkin's lymphoma the same?
No one knows: Certainly some other cancers have been linked but as far as i know there is no direct linkage. On the other hand, herbicides have had an association with lymphoma and myeloma and agent orange is a "super herbicide". It is always hard to show a direct linkage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Lymphoma in spleen: Inhomogenious spleen refer to a ct scan reading where different area of the spleen might have different texture. In general some of these cases are nonspecific, some are related to ifarction (dead tissue) and some are related to lymphoma. In this case, if the patient is already diagnosed with hodgkins lymphoma, most probably these area are lyphoma in the spleen surrounded by normal spleen tissue. ...Read more

Does early stage small cell lung cancer cause muscle loss and malabsorption or are these later symptoms?
Lung cancer cachexia: Muscle wasting and weight loss ("cancer cachexia") are usually late stage occurrences; malabsorption is usually not the cause of these signs, but rather "hormones" released from the tumor cause a hyper metabolic state and also contribute to poor appetite. If you are already experiencing these problems, however, it is possible that the tumor - although localized (stage 1) is unusually active. ...Read more
Tuberous sclerosis have a large percentage of which of the following tumors? 1-renal cell carcenoma 2-adenoma 3-angiomyolipoma 3-oncocytoma 4-sarcoma
Lymphoma vs. other: The spleen in hl may be heterogeneous/inhomogeneous/non-uniform due to lymphoma involvement, spleen infarction (death) due to cancer death in the spleen, or infection, or "other". The radiologist may or may not be able to determine that and your oncologist might be able to say more about it with knowing the clinical history. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Lul non small cell hilum region with lymph node involvement on pulmonary artery. Pet scan negative. Please stage.
Need more info: To completely stage, would need more information. However, lymph node involvement excluded stage 0 and stage i. If lymph nodes are on the same side as the hilar tumor, the tumor is at least 2 cm from the carina (where trachea divides into r and l main bronchi) and the tumor is 5 cm or smaller, it is stage iia. If tumor is 5-7 cm, and the rest true, it is stage iib. After that, it is complex! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Esophageal mucosal fragments reveal moderate mixed inflammatory cell infiltrate compromising neutrophils, lymphocytes, foci of mild dysplasia. Bad?
Maybe: Please check your report and see if there is any mention of barrett's esophagus or intestinal metaplasia. These findings would indicate a premalignant component that requires regular, lifetime followup. The finding of mild dysplasia may require additional medicines for a while, but please followup with your gastroenterologist that did the biopsy. ...Read more
