Although lymphoma is the medical name of lymph cancer, it is a type of cancer that can be treated with chemotherapy. In this article, we will look at both lymph cancer and chemotherapy treatment together.
Lymph cancer occurs as a result of the proliferation of blood cells called lymphocytes in the lymph nodes. Lymphocytes, which can multiply in various organs other than the lymph nodes, appear as malignant. The symptoms of lymphoma, which is a type of cancer that usually does not show symptoms in the early stages, can be surprising. In lymphoma, which can mimic many different diseases and show different symptoms, lymph nodes appear in many parts of the body. These parts are the neck, chest, armpits, stomach, and groin.
Why Is Lymphoma Chemotherapy Applied?
Some treatments that may be suitable for lymph cancer are applied by specialist oncologists in hematology and oncology departments. Of course, when deciding on the treatment method, the condition of the patient, the stage of the disease, and the health of the patient are of great importance. There are various drugs used for treatment, but drugs alone may not be enough. Or, in order to increase the effects of chemotherapy drugs, the drugs may need to be taken intravenously. For this reason, different methods are used.
The drugs used during chemotherapy treatment can sometimes affect the person’s body or lower their immunity. In order to avoid or prevent such problems, treatments such as blood transfusions may be recommended in addition to chemotherapy and radiotherapy procedures. Of course, all these treatment methods are followed in order to ensure the patient’s health.
