Depends: Not all breast cancers are the same and many other factors help to predict better or poorer outcomes such as tumor grade, # of positive lymph nodes, estrogen receptor status, her2neu status, etc. A score called oncotype DX based on genetic profiling of the cancer helps define prognosis also and tailor decisions as to the best and most beneficial treatment to use. ...Read more
Many types...: Lymphoma consists of >50 subtypes. Lymphoma can be divided/dichotomized into groups such as: 1) hodgkin lymphoma (hl)/non-hl (nhl), 2) t-/b-cell, 3) agressive/indolent. There are other divisions, but that is a start. "low grade" or indolent lymphomas can be multiple subtypes. The most common is follicular lymphoma. Treatment options range from "active observation" to Rituximab to chemo to sct. ...Read more
They're curable!: In fact higher grades more curable than indolent nodular lymphomas, but rates help you little. You need to know stage and cell types. Some are managed with chemotherapy alone, some add radiotherapy. But the big ideas: retuximab for b-cell + bone marrow / stem cell transplants. Age and hardiness also important. Indolent nhl not cured, but protracted survival the norm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What is the general prognosis for a grade 3 Astrocytoma and rate of recurrence with modern day diagnosis?
Tumor grading: Grading of tumors is a way of "standardizing" the type of cancer, and thereby improving consistency of treatment between treating doctors/institutions. In gliomas as in other sites, a higher grade also implies a more aggressive tumor and potentially a poorer prognosis. However, some high grade tumors can be curable, whereas low grade tumors tend to linger but not respond to treatments. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends on location: High grade nhl is curable and should be evaluated & treated at a center with experience. However, the treatment may be 4-6 months long and patient will also need family/caregiver support. If the diagnosis is confirmed, subtype properly identified and adequately staged treatment may be safely and skillfully delivered at local or regional cancer center. Access to clinical trials is very helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Still controversial: Current thinking is that if in early stages, it may be ok to just follow since it is so slow growing. May not cause a problem for years. If more advanced, currently chemotherapy combined with immune therapy (usually a monoclonal antibody called rituximab) is used. Most patients can achieve remission but the disease is currently not considered curable. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

What is the best way to recover from low WBC after chemotherapy (r-cvp for stage 2 diffuse large b-cell lymphoma) for a very elderly (85y) patient?
It depends.: R-cvp is a relatively milder regimen and therefore it does not usually result in very low wbcs. In general, modest decrease in WBC is expected and is not associated with higher risk for infections unless WBC become very low with neutrophil count below 500. If this is the case, you doctor may decide to use a growth factor given after chemotherapy to stimulate your bone marrow to produced wbcs. ...Read more
