Your doctor determines your treatment options based on the type and stage of your lymphoma, your age, and your overall health.
Treatment options include:
The most common treatments for lymphoma are chemotherapy (the use of drugs to kill cancer cells) and radiation therapy (the use of high-energy rays to kill cancer cells). Lymphoma chemotherapy usually consists of a combination of several drugs. Patients may receive chemotherapy alone or in combination with radiation therapy.
Blood marrow transplantation, biotherapies, or surgery are sometimes used in the treatment process.
