About Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma: A Shareable Guide for Patients, Family and Friends

 

Lymphoma is a cancer that starts in cells that are part of the body's immune system. The most common type is known as non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), and follicular lymphoma (FL) is a common subtype of that.

  • Knowing which type of lymphoma you have is important, because it affects your treatment options and your prognosis. 
  • Today there are several new treatments for FL used alone or in combination. 
  • Some people do not need treatment right away and when they do, the disease can often be managed for many years as a chronic condition. 
  • Besides approved therapies, there are now many clinical trials for lymphoma, so it is important to understand and discuss the full range of options as you begin a treatment plan.
