Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

What is non-hodgkin lymphoma?

About

Non-hodgkin lymphoma is cancer that occurs in the lymphatic system. It occurs when tumors develop from the lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell. Most types of the non-hodgkin lymphoma are categorized as either B-cell lymphoma or T-cell lymphoma.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that 85 percent of non-hodgkin lymphoma cases are B-cell lymphomas. [1]

- Is treatable by a medical professional
- Does not spread
- Requires a medical diagnosis
- Vaccinating against hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection reduces the risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) in adolescents
- Lab tests or imagings such as X-ray, MRI scan and CT scan always required
The cause of non-hodgkin lymphoma is not clear. In some cases, it is due to the weakened immune system. It begins when the body produces too many abnormal lymphocytes. Normally old lymphocytes die and body creates new ones. But with non-hodgkin lymphoma, lymphocytes don't die but continue to grow and divide.

Symptoms

- Abdominal pain or swelling
- Chest pain, coughing, or trouble breathing
- Fever
- Persistent fatigue
- Night sweats
- Unexplained weight loss
- Swollen lymph nodes in neck, armpits, or groin.

Treatment

Self-Care:
- Exercise regularly.
- Try meditation.
- Take time for yourself. Eat a healthy diet, relax, and get enough sleep.

Medication: Doctors may prescribe medication to improve the immune system.

Specialist: A specialist may recommend chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and bone marrow transplant if non-hodgkin lymphoma is aggressive. Contact mfine to get profound treatment for every disease.
