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 closely with the transplant team. 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.
