I had stage 4 aggressive non-hodgkin's lymphoma last year, 6 months later I am cancer free! what are the chances of it coming back?

I had stage 4 aggressive non-hodgkin's lymphoma last year, 6 months later I am cancer free! what are the chances of it coming back?

Better than even: This depends on variables including your age (younger does better), but even ten years ago, about 2/3 of people with stage IV (and stage is the major prognosticator) who were alive at one year were alive at ten (at which point it's unlikely to recur). Your oncologist has better numbers, but for any individual, it's either 0% or 100%. Cherish each new day, and best wishes. ...Read more

I am having pains in the lymph node that was biopsied and found to have non-hodgkin's lymphoma the aggressive fast-growing you think that is an indication that it has come back after being free from cancer for a year and?

I am having pains in the lymph node that was biopsied and found to have non-hodgkin's lymphoma the aggressive fast-growing you think that is an indication that it has come back after being free from cancer for a year and?

Hard to tell: Pain is not a specific symptom of cancer recurrence. Although, you are at a definitely high risk for cancer recurrence, it doesn't mean the pain is 100% cancer related one. I would get a consult from your oncologist on that. ...Read more

My grandma has non hodgkin's lymphoma, is it predicted to me to have lymphoma in the future?

NO IT DOES NOT!: Having a family member with non-hodgkin's lymphoma (nhl) may only put you at a slightly increased risk of getting it yourself. But most people who get nhl don't have a relative who has had it, so it isn't a major risk factor. Here are some of the other possible risk factors: 1. Immune system deficiency 2. Automimmune disease 3. Exposure to certain chemicals or radiation 5. Certain infections. ...Read more

I was told that univera xtra would be good for me. I have non-hodgkin's lymphoma and being treated for ptsd. Is this product a hox? Should I use it

Difficult to say: I looked on the univera xtra web site for your product. It appears to be a multilevel marketing product containing many ingredients including rhodiola and green tea, cordyceps, etc. It's hard to evaluate the reported benefits of vital energy, mental clarity, etc since there are some studies of ingredients -- but not of this product. I am always cautious about mlm company claims. Expensive too. ...Read more
