Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia | Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma | Scoop.it

A service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine
National Institutes of Health, MedlinePlus provides basic information regarding symptoms, exams and tests, treatments, support groups, and prognosis. Low-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma usually cannot be cured by chemotherapy alone. However, the low-grade form of this cancer progresses slowly, and it may take many years before the disease gets worse or even requires any treatment.

Chemotherapy can often cure many types of high-grade lymphoma. However, if the cancer does not respond to chemotherapy drugs, the disease can cause rapid death.
