Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma Stage 3 Survival Rate
Still good prognosis: Survival rates for nhl vary widely, depending on the lymphoma type, stage, age of the patient, and other variables. The overall 5-year relative survival rate for patients with non-hodgkin’s lymphoma is 63% and the 10-year relative survival rate is 51%. All the best, hk. ...Read more
Depends on type:
Not common but not different than for adult, I think:
if indolent- surgery and possibly radiation then watchful waiting (maybe with bone marrow harvest for later use)
if more aggressive, would use biochemotherapy (i.e.: "r-chop") after surgery. May also include radiation and marrow harvest. ...Read more
Diagnosis. B.Cell non hodgkin, s lymphoma favor burkitt, s lymphoma. This us the result of biopsy taken during appendicectomy. D20 positive and tdt neg?
CD20 is a B-Cell: Marker hence the assignment of a b-cell nhl. Tdt is an immunohistochemical stain used to classify blood cells. Burkitt's is a very aggressive process -- get started on a plan with a hematologist straight away. ...Read more
Systemic and local: Non hodgkins lymphoma may cause systemic symptoms such as weight loss, fever, night sweats and itchiness. Locally, it can present as a lump or sweling in the head and neck, groin or any lymph node area. If it's large, it can obstruct passage ways such as esophagus, intestines, ureter or blood vessels. If it involves the chest, it may give symptoms of cough, shortness of breath or pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A lot: Both hodgkin lymphoma (formerly known as hodgkin's disease) and non-hodgkin lymphoma (also known as non-hodgkin's lymphoma) are lymphomas, a type of cancer that originates in a subset of white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are an important part of your immune system. The main difference between hodgkin and non-hodgkin lymphoma is in the specific lymphocyte each involves. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Anyone briefly tell me what lymphoma (non hodgkin's) is and what types of things/viruses can cause it?
In general (generalizing 40+ lymphomas), nhl is very responsive to chemotherapy.
Refractory (non-responsive) nhl is bad.
Not all nhl is curable (eg follicular lymphoma), but even in those cases people often do well with continued treatments and/or maintenance therapy.
There are some very difficult/bad lymphomas such as ptcl and lymphomas can cause bad symptoms at diagnosis such as svc syndrome. ...Read more
Many, depends: There are many treatment options for non-hodgkin's lymphoma (nhl). There are 40+ sub-types of nhl. While many have the same treatment, the treatment approach and treatment intent varies by lymphoma. If the nhl is cd20+ then the monoclonal antibody Rituximab can be used alone or in combination with standard (cytotoxic) chemotherapy. Other potential tx include radiation and clinical trials. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Only indication is for hodkin's disease, and even in that condition, where it is used as part of the "mopp" regimen, it has been replaced by other regimens. It may have slight activity in other lymphomas but there are now many other effective chemotherapeutic and biologic choices. ...Read more
Along with your Dr.: Your oncologist will review your type of non-hodgkin lymphoma and then discuss treatment. A clinical trial may also be offered and this may take some time on your part to review the study that is given to you. Of course, your doctor and his/her staff, including the research team should be available to help you make a decision on a clinical trial. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not really: Non-hodgkin's lymphomas are a very large group of diseases. Lymph cell can be called t cells or b cells based on surface proteins. T cell lymphomas are just one group of non-hodgkins lymphomas. There are also several types of those tcell lymphomas. ...Read more
Depends: Chemotherapy can make you tired as well as your disease. Depending on your overall condition, it may be hard to work full time or at all. The portacath may limit some types of exercise and work duties. It is also good to stay out of crowds to reduce infection. Having said that, I have many patients who have little change in their routine except on the days they receive chemotherapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My grandmother has indolent Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Is this a risk factor for me. Or is it only when a parent has it.?
Low risk: Non Hodgkin's lymphoma, like most cancers, has a slight tendency to run in families. However, it's mostly just random chance that leads to the combination of mutations that cause the disease. Even identical twins are not at very high risk if the other gets it. So I would not worry about a history in grandparents. ...Read more
