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
Good...: Without knowing all of the details, overall approximately 80% of stage iii nhl are cured. ...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 more
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 more
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
Nhl has over 40 subtypes.
Treatment depends on dx, stage, prognosis, tumor & patient factors.
Dlbcl: r-chop most common
fl: observation vs. Rituximab vs. R-chop vs. R-bendamustine vs. Other...
That is vague, but there is no general answer. ...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 more
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 more
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 more
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
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
Complex question: There are many different types of non-hodgkin's lymphoma and they have many different causes. Some of the lymphomas are caused by viruses and bacteria (some burkitt lymphoma, marginal zone lymphoma of the spleen, acute t-cell lymphoma). Others occur as people age because of the genetic mutations that are continually occurring in the immune system. Lymphomas spread because they are part of the immune system nd immune cells naturally travel around the body. ...Read more
Its cancer of Lymph: Lymphoma is a Cancer arising from the lymph glands. There are several subtypes. Ask your oncologist more about it.

Normal?: I'm not sure what you mean by normal. It is not uncommon in this age group. ...Read more
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 do you advise if I see violet for hogdkin's lymphoma. But I need the color for non hodgkin's lymphoma. Anyone know?
My pathology report basically says I don't have non Hodgkin's lymphoma but should go through other testings to exclude Hodgkin's lymphoma among others?
Pathology of what?: My guess is you had blood sent for flow cytometry. If you just had this blood test, Hodgkin's disease (a type of lymphoma) can't be diagnosed with that. A pathologist has to look at tissue under the microscope to make the diagnosis. This is usually a lymph node that has been removed. If you have enlarged lymph nodes, this may be a test you will need. Ask your doctor. ...Read more
The cure rate for non-hodgkin lyphoma is high and getting higher by the newer medications. It starts in the lymph nodes. Cure rates depend on 1- stage: limited versus advanced and/or involving other tissues, like liver or bone marrow. 2- type of lymphoma, small, diffuse, low grade or high grade. There are books and books on lymphoma. Trust your medical team and proceed. Be optimistic and beat
it. ...Read more
Fever, sweats: The classic "b" symptoms are fever, drenching night sweats, and weight loss. Signs include enlarged lymph nodes, especially in the neck and arm pits, and enlargement of the spleen. Some patients may become anemic and if so would look pale. Diagnosis requires biopsy as many other conditions present similarly. If concerned see your doctor. ...Read more
Variable.: Usually lymphomas involve an enlargement of a lymph node or group of lymph nodes. The nodes that can be felt are typically in the neck and armpits. Other nodes in the chest and abdomen can become quite large, but can be present with minimal symptoms. Other symptoms could be fever, abdominal pain, chest pain, back/hip pain, fatigue, bleeding/bruising. ...Read more
Tough question: There are over 40 different types of nhl. Some are curable and some are not. There are certain types of nhl that only need treatment if they cause trouble. They are typically not curable and you treat when needed. But people can live a long life and may not require therapy. ...Read more
Many good treatments: You should go and see a Medical oncologist. They can treat you with chemotherapy which works very well and can often cure this disease. But avoid delays in getting to a good Oncologist or to a major Cancer center where you can find specialists for treating Lymphoma. ...Read more
