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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Yes: Controlis quite high, but it needs aggressive treatment. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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! ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Depends: Some patients have had great success with such treatment. Depends on the specific cell type. ...Read more
Good odds: Stem cells are used following high dose chemotherapy. The cure is effectively achieved with high dose chemotherapy, the stem cells are used to repopulate the bone marrow so that normal blood formation can be revived. This process is commonly used for treatment of non hodgkins lymphomas as a rescue therapy and can salvage/cure about 50% of cases who have filed to get well with initial chemotherapy. ...Read more
A Rare Lymphoma: Hstcl is a rare cancer of the the white blood cells. It usually affects young men with a history of immunosuppression for other diseases like inflammatory bowel disease (uc and/or crohn's) or after an organ transplant. The bad cells usually grow in the liver, spleen and bone marrow. It is treated with chemotherapy and possibly a bone marrow transplant. It unfortunately can be difficult to cure. ...Read more
Non Hodgkin lymphoma: There are many type of b cells nhl. In general- very responsive to chemo and biological agent- which is the mainstay treatment of nhl. It is also sensitive to radiation tx which sometimes used as a single agent in a very limited localized stage. Treatment would depend on the biology, stage, other prognostic factors- like age, blood counts, symptoms, etc. Radioimmunotherapy, bmt are also available. ...Read more
Mantle cell: Lymphoma has a broad range of expected survival. The minority of patients have an indolent course, and may not even require therapy at the time of diagnosis. More commonly treatment is initiated with moderate to aggressive chemotherapy with duration of benefit on the order of 3-5 years. With recurrence the management can be more challenging. ...Read more
Need to know subtype: The prognosis for patients with lymphoma is highly dependent on the subtype of lymphoma which they have. For diffuse large b-cell lymphoma, the most common lymphoma in north america the prognosis for stage ii is excellent with a good chance of cure. For follicular lymphoma, the 2nd most common nodal lymphoma the prognosis is also quite good. ...Read more
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 more
No.: If there is involvment of the bone marrow, the blood may be effected as well, and cancer cells may be found on a cell count. Some types of lymphoma commonly present this way, but others may only rarely be detected on a complete blood count. Hodgkin lymphoma may cause other changes such as a high white blood count and an increase in eosinophils (a kind of normal white cell), sometimes with anemia. ...Read more
