Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Q&A

VIDEO | 22:30

Medical oncologist Steven Horwitz answers questions about various types of lymphoma, including non-Hodgkin lymphoma, following his presentation given during a Web chat in November 2013.

Many of the inquiries are related to lymphoma treatment for rare lymphomas. The Q&A session includes a discussion about watchful waiting — delaying treatment and closely monitoring a patient until symptoms develop — which he says is an appropriate approach to consider for people who have a slow-growing or indolent lymphoma.

Dr. Horwitz also addresses questions about survivorship and quality-of-life issues.
