Non-Hodgkin lymphoma treatment often includes cancer-destroying drugs (such as chemotherapy or targeted therapy) or radiation therapy. Your doctor may recommend one or both treatments.
A multidisciplinary team of doctors who specialize in blood cancers meet to discuss every patient’s care. They review several factors, such as a cancer’s makeup and your overall health. We discuss all your options with you and decide on a treatment plan that offers the best chance of success. Learn more about cancer treatments.
A stem cell transplant may help treat certain types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, especially cancers that don’t respond to treatment or come back (recur). If your doctor recommends a stem cell transplant, your cancer treatment team will work in partnership with teams at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston or Methodist Hospital in San Antonio. We monitor your health and provide seamless care before and after the transplant.
Sometimes, non-Hodgkin lymphoma comes back after successful treatment. In the months and years after your treatment, regular follow-up visits and testing help us track your health. Our goal is to catch any possible recurrence in the earliest stages, when it’s easier to treat.
