Depending on the type and stage of the lymphoma and other factors, treatment options for people with NHL might include chemotherapy, targeted therapy drugs, radiation therapy, stem-cell transplant, and surgery. Patients should know that NHL treatment does come with some complications.
Another important part of treatment for many people is palliative or supportive care. This can help prevent or treat problems such as infections, low blood cell counts, or some symptoms caused by the lymphoma.
The length of treatment varies, depending on the stage of the disease. The prognosis of NHL can be good, but again, it depends on the type, severity and response to therapy.
The overall five-year survival rate for people with NHL is 71 per cent, while the overall 10-year survival rate is 60 per cent.
The cost of treatment starts is around USD 17,918 in India.
