Diagnosing Lymphoma

When you visit your doctor with concerns about lymphoma, they'll start with some basic questions like the following:

  • Are you experiencing any pain? Where?

  • How's your appetite?

  • Have you lost weight recently?

  • Do you often feel tired or weak?

  • What are your past medical issues and treatments?

  • What's your family's medical history like?

Your doctor will then do a physical exam, paying close attention to your lymph nodes. Swollen nodes don't always mean cancer—they're often just a sign of an infection.

To confirm whether it's lymphoma, you might need a few tests:

  • Lymph Node Biopsy:

A part or an entire lymph node is removed, or a sample is taken with a needle.

  • Bone Marrow Aspiration or Biopsy:

This involves taking a bit of fluid or tissue from your bone marrow to check for lymphoma cells.

  • Chest X-Ray:

This is a simple way to look inside your chest using a bit of radiation.

  • MRI:

This uses magnets and radio waves to get detailed images of your body's insides.

  • PET Scan:

This special scan uses a radioactive substance to find cancer cells.

  • Molecular Test:

This test looks for genetic changes in cancer cells, helping to identify the lymphoma type.

  • Blood Tests:

These check for specific cell counts, substance levels, or signs of infection in your blood.

Lymphoma Treatment

Treating lymphoma involves several methods, and what's best for you depends on your lymphoma type, stage, overall health, and personal preferences.

Here are some treatment options:


crop-nurse-injecting-patient-with-drug-intravenous

Active Surveillance:

For slow-growing lymphoma, you and your doctor might opt to monitor your condition and start treatment only when necessary.

Chemotherapy:

This involves drugs that target fast-growing cells, like cancer cells. It can be given through a vein or as pills.

Radiation Therapy:

High-energy beams, such as X-rays, are used to destroy cancer cells.

Other Treatments:

This includes targeted drugs that attack specific cancer cell abnormalities, immunotherapy to boost your immune system against cancer, and CAR T-cell therapy, which involves engineering your T cells to fight cancer and then re-infusing them into your body.

Tailoring Treatment To Lymphoma Type

Early Hodgkin Disease:


This is usually treated with a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.


Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL):


Depending on the stage, it can be treated with localised radiotherapy, combination chemotherapy, or both. For aggressive NHL, immediate chemotherapy and "involved field radiotherapy" (targeting only the affected area) may be required.

Living with Lymphoma

Lymphoma treatments can have side effects. Communicating with your medical team about any symptoms and finding ways to manage them is crucial.

Diet and exercise, for example, play a significant role in your well-being during treatment:

  • Dietary Adjustments:

Consult a dietitian to guide you on the best foods to support your treatment.

  • Exercise:

Activities like walking or swimming can reduce fatigue and improve overall well-being during treatments.
