Lymphomas are cancers of the lymphatic system. There are two main types known as Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma but they have similar symptoms. These include swollen lymph nodes, (often in the neck), sweating, unexplained temperatures, and weight loss.
Tests are likely to include x-rays and blood tests, and a biopsy where a little of the lymph node is removed under general anaesthetic.
Treatment can include radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and, in some cases, bone marrow and stem cell transplants.
Ramsay hospitals offers a range of screening and diagnostic procedures at a time convenient to you, and also offers treatment for some of the most common types of cancer. We offer the support of multi-disciplinary teams who will be working together to ensure you get the care which is right for you.
