Non-hodgkin lymphoma vs. Hodgkin lymphoma, what is the difference?

Non-hodgkin lymphoma vs. Hodgkin lymphoma, what is the difference?

Many.: Nhl is treated with different chemotherapy than hd. Stage for stage hd carries a better prognosis. Hd usually occurs in the young adult and the elderly; nhl occurs most often during middle age. Many different grades of nhl (low grade, intermediate, high) while hd is not divided into grades. ...Read more

What is the difference between acute myeloid leukemia vs acute lymphocytic leukemia?

What is the difference between acute myeloid leukemia vs acute lymphocytic leukemia?

Types of cells: White blood cells are different with different mechanisms to pretect body from infections. Acute myeloid leukemia arise from a type of white cells called myeloid series or neutophils, cut lymphoblastic leukemiaa arise from lymph type of white cells. These two types of leukemia have different treatments and the outcome or expectations are very different, none is better than the other in general. ...Read more

What is the difference between hodgkin lymphoma and non-hodgkin lymphoma?

What is the difference between hodgkin lymphoma and non-hodgkin lymphoma?

Disease type: The 2 diseases are closely linked. The hodgkin lymphoma was described by the doctor bearing its name and usually has a specific cell associated with it. This cell is not the target of new therapies for relapsed disease. In general terms, this disease is highly curable whereas some of the many types of non-hodgkin lymphoma are not. ...Read more

What's the difference between Hodgkin's lymphoma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma?

What's the difference between Hodgkin's lymphoma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma?

Different lymphomas: There are around 30 different types of lymphoma distinguished by how they look under the microscope, the proteins they bear on their cell surface, and the gene mutations that caused the problem to begin with. The type of treatment varies a lot between the different types and is too complicated to cover here. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of America website will be your best bet for more details. ...Read more

What's the difference between Hodgkin's lymphoma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma?

Both Hodgkin's lymphoma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma are lymphomas — a type of cancer that begins in a subset of white blood cells called lymphocytes: Lymphocytes are an integral part of your immune system, which protects you from germs. The main difference between Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is in the specific lymphocyte each involves. A doctor can tell the difference between Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma by examining the cancer cells under a microscope. If in examining the cells, the doctor detects the presence of a specific type of abnormal cell called a Reed-Sternberg cell, the lymphoma is classified as Hodgkin's. If the Reed-Sternberg cell is not present, the lymphoma is classified as non-Hodgkin's. Additional tests may be used to determine the specific type of lymphoma. Your type of lymphoma helps your doctor determine your prognosis and your treatment options. The types of lymphoma have very different disease courses and treatment choices, so an accurate diagnosis is an integral part of getting the care you need. ...Read more

Is there a difference between myelogenous leukemia and lymphocytic leukemia?

Is there a difference between myelogenous leukemia and lymphocytic leukemia?

Yes: Myelogenous leukemia involves a different early cell type than lymphocytic leukemia. Both can originate in the bone marrow but the diseases behave differently in both their acute and chronic forms. Different treatment regimens and strategies are used for the two and that is why it is so important to distinguish the exact type of leukemia. There are major differences within these 2 categories. ...Read more

What's the difference between hodgkins lymphoma and non-hodgkins lymphoma?

Probably a lot: But the biggies are reed-sternberg cells define hd, not found in nhl. Most nhl's are b-cell, where hd is not. Hd spreads contiguously, nhl does not. Both treated with chemo, different kinds, and rituxumab is the new targeted therapy for b-cells, with chemo or conjugated with radio-isotopes. ...Read more

What is sarcoma versus metastatic disease versus lymphoma versus paraganglioma?

Different lesions: A sarcoma is a malignant lesion arising from connective and not glandular tissue such as visceral leiomyosarcoma of uterus or stomach. metastatic disease represents spread of tumor that may arise from a sarcoma or carcinoma, lymphoma is a malignant form of blood cellular disease and paraganglioma is the benign form of the lesion arising from nerve tissue. All represent different forms of disease. ...Read more

What's the difference between myelogenous leukemia and lymphocytic leukemia?

Different cells: Myeloid cells and cancer (eg, aml, cml) are different than lymphoid cells and cancer (eg, all, cll). Just as breast cancer and colon cancer are different. Of course they are bone marrow cancers with blood cells and the differences are not like the solid tumor differences i mentioned above. The disease course and treatments are different based on the diagnosis and other factors. ...Read more

What is the difference between hodgkins lymphoma and leukemia ?

Many: Hd is a cancer of primarily the lymph glands. It presents with enlarged lymph nodes, fatigue, fever, sweats. It is treated with chemotherapy and possibly radiation therapy. There are many types of leukemia. They are all malignancies of bone marrow. They are treated with chemotherapy or immunotherapy, depending on the type. Some leukemias may not require immediate treatment and can be "watched". ...Read more

How do hodgkin lymphoma and non hodgkin lymphoma differ?

How do hodgkin lymphoma and non hodgkin lymphoma differ?

Spread pattern: Primarily, hodgkins lymphoma teens to spread from one lymph node site to an adjacent site. Non hodgkins lymphoma is more likely to skip lymph node chains to spread distantly. This is why local radiation has historically be more important in the treatment of hodgkins than non hodgkins. ...Read more

For hodgkin's disease lymphoma: what's the difference between stage iiia1 and iiia2?

Location: Stage iii means nodes on both sides of the diaphragm. Letter "a" means no lymphoma symptoms like weight loss, night fever or night sweats. The 1 or 2 means involvement of the spleen and upper abdominal nodes (1) or lower abdominal nodes (2). Treatment would be the same either way and as far as i recall, so should be the prognosis insofar as the patient gets adequate chemo. ...Read more

How is acute myeloid leukemia different from chronic lymphoma leukemia?

There are many types of white blood cells and the subtype of leukemia or lymphoma or myeloma depends on which subtype is out of control. ...Read more
