About the disease

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is cancer, which develops in the lymphatic system and can spread to all parts of body. In this type of cancer tumor arises from lymphocytes, white blood cells. Normally old lymphocytes die and new ones develop. During this disease old lymphocytes do not die, but begin to accumulate, creating swollen lymph nodes. Such abnormality can happen if person takes immunosuppressants or is infected with HIV, hepatitis B and C virus.

There are such types of this cancer:

  • B-cell lymphoma
  • T-cell lymphoma

In the first type, tumor begins to grow in B-cells which are responsible for fighting infections and destroying dangerous foreign agents by producing antibodies. In the second type lymphoma appears in T-cells, which neutralize infections directly. 

According to Cancer Research UK, there are about 380 000 cases of this cancer reported annually in Europe. Usually this disease is diagnosed at the late stage. Timely diagnosis is extremely important, as almost 63% of patients survive if treated timely.

Various statistics also shows that more than 50% of patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma develop this disease after the age of 65-67 years.

Symptoms

  • Swollen but painless lymph nodes
  • Fever
  • Pain in the abdomen and chest
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty breathing

Diagnosis

  • The first method for non-Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosing is physical examination. Doctor assesses size of lymph nodes, extent of their swelling and discomfort they cause. Another indicator of lymphoma is enlarged liver and spleen which can swell because of excessive amount of white cells.
  • Biopsy is the most precise diagnostic method. Doctor investigates the tissue of lymph nodes under the microscope in order to determine if patient has lymphoma and which stage it is.
  • In some cases symptoms of this disease can be deceiving. They may be simple indicators of virus or infection. To rule out this possibility, doctors check urine test and complete blood count.
  • CT scan produces images of lymph nodes that can also indicate lymphoma. 

Treatment

  • Chemotherapy (targeted therapy) is administered when the disease becomes progressive. This type of treatment uses cytotoxic drugs that neutralize cancerous cells. In case of non-Hodgkin lymphoma chemotherapy is usually injected into veins in small doses. It is recommended at stages 3 and 4. In some cases drugs can be administered in form of tablets, which need to be taken regularly at home.
  • Stem cell transplantation is used after administration of high doses of chemotherapy when both malignant and healthy cells are killed and patient needs new healthy cells to be transplanted into his bone marrow. Later, these stem cells will transform into white and red blood cells, which will be spreading further to other parts of body. Before chemotherapy doctor usually takes patient`s healthy stem cells, which are then frozen and stored. After chemotherapy when there is a critical amount of healthy bone marrow stems doctors perform transplantation.
  • Radiotherapy is usually used in combination with surgery and chemotherapy. It implies application of high energy rays that can diminish cancerous cells number. If person have undergone stem cells transplantation he may require full irradiation to kill remaining malignant cells in the bone marrow. A person may feel tired after the course of radiotherapy, but this feeling will wear off after completing the course. This treatment is especially beneficial for prevention of further metastasizing.

Combination of treatment options and availability of innovative techniques will ensure fast recovery and bring good results.
