What is d cell lymphoma?

What is d cell lymphoma?

T cell lymphoma?: I think you mean t cell lymphoma, a cancer of t cells or thymocytes that can cause lymph gland enlargement, low blood counts, fevers, and sweats. A particular subtype is gamma-delta (the greek letter for d) hepatosplenic lymphoma, which could also be what you're referring to. A good source of information is the leukemia & lymphoma society of america's website.

Wat is mantle cell lymphoma?

Wat is mantle cell lymphoma?

Mantle cell lymphoma: Is a less common b-cell disease in the non-hodgkin's lymphoma group. It tends to be advanced stage when diagnosed, and can have a propensity to involve both the gut and skin. About 20% of cases behave indolently, and treatment is quite effective at diagnosis. Late relapses are common, and treatment is more challenging the second time around.

What is badly diffused b cell lymphoma?

Not a common term: Diffuse b cell lymphoma is by definition an aggressive lymphoma which has the ability to spread rapidly if not treated. It is a "bad actor". I assume this term may be referring to a lymphoma that has already spread a good deal before being diagnosed. Even so, these lymphomas are often treatable and can be cured in the majority of cases.

What is the rate of survival of a diffuse b-cell lymphoma?

It is quite good: These are fast growing lymphomas that respond well to modern chemotherapy. Your doctor can tell you what risk category you fall into based on your age and several aspects of your tumor which include it's stage at presentation. Outside of this, staying on time with chemotherapy and not having to reduce the intended dose lead to the highest cure rates. The majority of patients can be cured.

For what length of time can mantle cell lymphoma go undetected?

It depends: Most lymphomas grow quite fast. That is often the case with mantle cell lymphoma too. So I would say it takes 3-6 months before the symptoms become pretty severe that we/you can not miss it easily.

B cell, low degree, stage two nonhodgkins lymphoma, is it cureable or just treatable?

Need info: Which type of non hodgkin's lymphoma you are referring here? In general, lymphoma is very sensitive and responsive to chemotherapy & radiation therapy.They are treatable and in many cases they are curable. There are different kinds of chemo including biological agents used for different kind of lymphoma. Sometimes radiation is given to local disease. Discuss further with your oncologist.

How long can mantle cell lymphoma go undetected? Where does mantle cell lymphoma show up?

Months, anywhere: Mantle cell lymphoma is a rare subtype of non-hodgkin's lymphoma. It usually grows relatively slowly and might take several weeks to a few months to develop. It most commonly presents in the lymph nodes, the blood, and the spleen although it can also present anywhere in the G.I. Tract from the stomach down to the colon.

Is there any possibility that nkt cell lymphoma back even she has 8 cycles of chemotherapy?

Is there any possibility that nkt cell lymphoma back even she has 8 cycles of chemotherapy?

Recurrence: Recurrence is always possible especially in the first year after the diagnosis and treatment. That's why there is such a term as 5 year survival which if reached indicates complete remission and low chance of cancer recurrence, but even then not 0% in some types.

Can you tell me how a low grade b cell lymphoma (maltoma)affects a normal life of a young man?

Depends: Treatment depends on site (usually gastric) and whether there is an associated infection as underlying cause (H. Pylori in gastric). Treating infection can resolve lymphoma in some cases. Other isolated maltomas might be treated with radiation and resolve. Chemo is last choice. Prognosis can be very good. Talk to your oncologist.

Could you please give me a way to give myself leukemia, or lymphoma? I'm willing to purchase cells or other necessities. Thank you.

Could you please give me a way to give myself leukemia, or lymphoma? I'm willing to purchase cells or other necessities. Thank you.

Will not do it!: The first principle in medicine is, "First do no harm". None of us would intentionally harm a patient. Giving some one a disease is against all the moral, ethical and common sense practices in medicine. May I urge that you consult a psychiatrist to ascertain why do you want to harm yourself. May God bless you with good health, happiness and prosperity!

Mantle cell lymphoma - is that like a hodgkin's?

Mantle cell lymphoma - is that like a hodgkin's?

Non hodgkin's: Mantle cell lymphoma is a subset of non hodgkin's lymphoma. Under microscope, it looks like clusters of small size of lymphoid cells mimicking appearance of indolent/slow-progressing lymphoma, however it behaves like an agressive lymphoma. The treatment would be combinations of chemotherapies plus biological therapy.

Can stems cells curing non-hodgkins lymphoma?

Yes.: Stem cell transplantation, usually from the patient's own bone marrow (autologous stem cell transplantation) can dure certain types of lymphoma that was not cured by chemotherapy. Transplantation using another person's cells (allogeneic transplant) is more experimental, but also capable of curing patients where other treatments have failed.
