Lymphoma Treatment Options
Radiation Therapy for Lymphoma
Treatment options depend on the type of lymphoma, its stage and your overall health. Treatment may include chemotherapy or radiation therapy, either alone or in combination. It will help to talk to your radiation oncologist and medical oncologist before deciding on the best course of treatment for you, your disease, and your lifestyle.
