Primary Mediastinal Large B Cell Lymphoma
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
Are lymphocyte rich hodgkin's lymphoma and nodular lymphocyte predominant hodgkin's lymphoma the same?
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
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

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

There are no obvious: Causitive agents like there is for lung cancer. It doesn't tend to run in families most of the time either. Risk factors for developing it are increasing age, male sex (slightly more common ) and being white. It is uncommon in young females such as yourself, but not unheard of. ...Read more
Mediastinal lymph node biopsy, small cell lung cancer. Lungs clear on CT. Is this an unknown primary or not, ie does sclc mean primary must be in lung?
2 enlarged lymph nodes in the ant mediastinum, pet suv of abt 4.7, suspected thymoma nearby. Can this be lymphoma?
Would small cell lung cancer in a mediastinal lymph node be classed as cancer of unknown primary if lung was clear on imaging.
SCLC arises next: to the bronchi and may not be visible on CT imaging in spite of the fact that it has already spread to a lymph node. Very rarely this same type of tumor arises in the prostate, cervix or gastrointestinal tract. Perhaps a sophisticated imaging technique such as PET scanning could detect the primary tumor in the lung, though knowing the type of tumor already can guide their treatment effectively. ...Read more
Multiple enlarged axilla lymph nodes (largest is 2cm) normal chest xray.High Wbc. High absolute neutropolis.High lymphocytes. Lymphoma Cancer?
Dont assume cancer: never make assumptions regarding cancer...you are right to be concerned and you should pursue further work-up...this will include a history and complete exam with possible further x-rays....the enlarged nodes could represent infection and not cancer...be prepared for biopsy to make final diagnosis ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

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
