Lymphocytes are like the "guards" of the body, and lymph nodes are their "home base." One of the main functions of lymph nodes is to resist viruses and bacteria and protect the body from infection. But when lymphocytes become malignant, lymphoma will form. These malignant cells will occupy normal lymph nodes, causing lymph node swelling, and may also cause symptoms such as fever, night sweats, and weight loss.
Is lymphoma curable? The answer is that most lymphomas are curable.
The main treatment for lymphoma is chemotherapy. Even some early-stage lymphomas must receive chemotherapy because most lymphomas are very sensitive to chemotherapy. Encouragingly, even advanced lymphoma can be cured with chemotherapy.
For the treatment of malignant lymphoma, most doctors advocate a combination of traditional Chinese and Western medicine. Chemotherapy can directly eliminate cancer cells, while syndrome differentiation and treatment of traditional Chinese medicine can adjust the internal balance of the body, enhance the body's resistance, and reduce the adverse effects of chemotherapy on the body.
①Before chemotherapy, remove evil and strengthen the body
Based on the principle of "yang transforming qi", deficient righteousness and evil are actually their essence. Traditional Chinese medicine uses strengthening the body to make righteousness sufficient to expel evil, thus allowing patients to complete radiotherapy and chemotherapy more smoothly.
② During chemotherapy, protect the spleen and strengthen the kidneys
The spleen and stomach are acquired foundations, and the kidneys control bones and produce marrow. Protecting the spleen and strengthening the kidneys during chemotherapy can reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and allow patients to successfully complete the chemotherapy course.
Lymphoma is a malignant tumor, but at present, the treatment effect is relatively good. Especially for Hodgkin's lymphoma, as long as it undergoes chemotherapy and local radiotherapy, the 5-year survival rate can reach more than 90%. Even for advanced stage patients, after comprehensive treatment, they can have a 5-year survival rate of 50%-70%.
In short, lymphoma is a curable disease. As long as patients cooperate with doctors in active treatment and maintain a good attitude, they can achieve effective disease control and long-term survival.
