Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) is a cancer arising from the lymphatic system. More than 70 types of NHL have been identified to date. It is an acquired genetic disorder, meaning you are not born with it. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma occurs when there are mutations in the white blood cells or the lymphocytes. Most non-Hodgkin lymphomas (approximately 85%) start from the B-cells. The chances of developing NHL are higher in patients with certain infections and immune system disorders. Symptoms of NHL include:

  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Abdominal pain and swelling
  • Cough
  • Chest pain
  • Dyspnea
  • Unexplained weight loss and fever
  • Heavy night sweats

Treating non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) involves a multidisciplinary approach and depends upon several factors, including NHL subtype, stage, and the patient's general health. Here are the primary modalities of NHL treatment:

  • In chemotherapy, potent drugs are administered intravenously or orally to eliminate cancer cells systemically. The specific NHL subtype and the extent of the disease dictate the choice of chemotherapy regimen.
  • Radiation therapy employs high-energy X-rays or other forms of radiation to target and destroy/kill cancerous cells. It is primarily used for localized NHL or to consolidate treatment after chemotherapy.
  • Immunotherapeutic agents, such as monoclonal antibodies and immune checkpoint inhibitors, aim to enhance the immune system's ability to recognize and combat NHL cells. 
  • Targeted therapies are molecularly designed drugs that selectively disrupt the growth and survival of NHL cells by targeting specific proteins or pathways involved in their proliferation.
  • Stem Cell Transplant involves replacing the diseased bone marrow with healthy stem cells that can produce cancer-free WBCs. It is usually of two types: autologous and allogeneic.
