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.
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.
As part of our comprehensive service, Norton Cancer Institute gives patients the chance to participate in innovative National Cancer Institute and industry-sponsored clinical research studies. Clinical research study listings are available online or you may call (502) 629-3449.
