Radiotherapy, immunotherapy, radio-immunotherapy and chemotherapy are some of the most common treatments for lymphoma. Your doctor will plan your treatment by taking into consideration the type and size of the tumour, whether the cancer has spread, your age and general health.
In recent years a lot of progress has been made with the treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphomas and an increasing number of people can now be successfully treated, even when the disease has spread from the original site.
Low-grade lymphomas grow very slowly and sometimes do not need treatment for a long time, if at all, and regular check-ups are all that is needed. When they do require treatment it is most often with mild chemotherapy tablets which can be taken at home.
High-grade lymphomas are faster growing and need treatment with intensive chemotherapy.
