What is the survival rate for non-hodgkins lymphoma in a 17 year old girl?

Good. The 5-year survival rate for those younger than 20 years of age with nhl increased from less than 50% in the 60's and 70's to over 75% recently. See your hematologist or oncologist for more details and therapy options.

Symptoms - severe weight and hair loss, yellow skin color, severe lower abdomen pain 38 year old female and remission in non-hodgkins lymphoma

Weight . Weight loss and and hair changes suggest thyroid problems. Abdominal pain and yellow discoloration of the skin (jaundice) suggest liver disease. The history of hodgkin's lymphoma adds a twist that's hard to nail down: weight loss, jaundice, and abdominal pain could also reflect recurrence of that disease, but it hard to tie lymphoma to hair changes. I think you need to see your primary care doctor or oncologist as soon as possible and get some blood tests. You'll probably also need a ct scan of the abdomen. Read more...

Grandma diagnosed with stage 3 non-hodgkins lymphoma. After 3 years of treatment shes completely cancer free. High or low chance cancer will come back?

Depends on subtype. There are dozens of different subtypes of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. Most will remit; curiously, the lymphomas that are naturally more aggressive are more likely to be cured by chemotherapy. Since in your Grandma's case, it's either "cured" or "not cured", why not plan with her for a happy rest-of-her-life, assume a cure, and live richly -- remembering to treasure whatever time you have together.

It depends. There are several different types of Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas(NHL). The common ones include Follicular lymphoma which is low grade and indolent but can relapse even after 3-5 years of remission. The other common one is called Diffuse large B cell(DLBCL). This is potentially curable and very unlikely to relapse after 3 years of remission. So check which su-btype of NHL does she have. Read more...

How do I find what's the difference between hodgkin's disease and non-hodgkins lymphoma?

Cells. Different cell lineages. They are all lymphomas - derived from lymphocytes, but hl and nhl are from different variants of these cells. Both diseases tend to spread through lymph nodes, but the treatments are different (ie different chemo regimen) and they tend to occur at different ages in patients. Not enough room here to go into that much depth of discussion. Read more...
