According to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the number of lymphoma cases diagnosed annually has nearly doubled over the last 35 years. While experts are not sure of the cause for the increase, immune suppression may be to blame for some of these cases. If you or someone you love has Hodgkin or non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Norton Cancer Institute is here to help throughout the treatment and recovery process.

Detection

If your physician suspects lymphoma, he or she may do a series of tests including:

  • Blood tests
  • Biopsy
  • Imaging Studies such as x-rays, CT or MRI scans
  • Bone marrow examination

Treatment options

Treatment for either Hodgkin or non-Hodgkin lymphoma will depend on the stage or severity of the disease. Hodgkin lymphoma is often treated with radiation and chemotherapy. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is sometimes treated with radiation and/or chemotherapy. Treatment may also include monoclonal antibody therapy as well as radioimmunotherapy.
