According to relevant report data, there is a new case every 9 minutes in the world. According to data, there are more men with lymphoma than women. So what are the treatments for lymphoma?
Multiple clinical studies have proven that with appropriate treatment, patients' clinical efficacy will be greatly improved and their survival time will be significantly prolonged. Therefore, it is necessary to maintain a positive attitude and better cooperate with the doctor's treatment. Lymphoma usually has the following treatments:
Chemotherapy drugs kill rapidly growing tumor cells. Usually, chemotherapy is the mainstay of lymphoma treatment. However, chemotherapy has great toxic and side effects. It will damage normal cells during the treatment process, and it will also be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, hair loss, low white blood cells and other phenomena.
Radiotherapy uses high-energy rays to irradiate the tumor site to kill tumor cells. Radiation therapy plays an important role in the treatment of certain subtypes of lymphoma. At the same time, radiotherapy can also be used as a consolidation and auxiliary method after chemotherapy. However, radiotherapy has certain side effects, such as skin reactions and decrease in white blood cells.
3. Stem cell transplantation
Transplantation methods are divided into autologous stem cell transplantation and allogeneic stem cell transplantation. The former is prone to recurrence. The latter has good therapeutic effects, but it places high demands on the patient's own body, the treatment cost is also high, and immune reactions may occur.
People suffering from lymphoma generally suffer a lot. If the early symptoms of lymphoma are not discovered as early as possible, the patient may not be able to receive timely treatment, and it will be difficult to control the disease. Lymphoma is a malignant tumor and is relatively common. Once it is diagnosed, it will add a lot of trouble to the patient's life. If people do not detect the symptoms of lymphoma in time, it may worsen the patient's condition and make it difficult to cure over time.
