How quickly should treatment start for diffuse large b cell lymphoma?

Fairly quickly. This is a very fast growing disease which in most cases has already caused some damage before it is discovered. It is important to quickly stage the disease and then begin treatment. Your oncologist will know how much time can pass before you start treatment. Everyone is different in this respect and sometimes life's issues (graduations, weddings) can be worked around..And sometimes not.
