What to expect from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma

Keypoints

  • Even apparently similar cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma often have different treatment
  • Delays in starting treatment due to the need for diagnostic tests should not be a concern, as it is crucial that the right treatment is chosen

Introduction

Everyone's experience of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is different. Even people who appear to have lymphoma of the same type or stage may need different treatment from each other and experience different outcomes.

non-Hodgkins lymphoma - different treatment

Before a diagnosis of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma can be made or treatment started, diagnostic tests and staging tests will be needed.

It might seem that treatment is being delayed unnecessarily while all these tests are being done. However, correct treatment depends on having the correct diagnosis, and any slight delay will be more than made up for by being able to give the best treatment from the start.
