I have a 70-year-old patient. She presented with a colon mass. A biopsy showed that it was diffuse large B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, or DLBL.
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, or NHL, is a common form of cancer. It is cancer of the lymph nodes. It can involve the spleen, bone marrow and sometimes other sites. In general, we can treat most NHL. This can be low grade or intermittent or high grade.
