Is it possible to find quantification of cancerous B cells present over time in a B cell lymphoma patient?


I have a teacher who gives really odd homework assignments... and it may help if I knew how quickly B cell lymphoma spread and how quickly rituximab destroys it.

Thanks!

What is the prognosis for 65 white male diagnosed with B-cell lymphoma?


my dad was just diagnosed with lymphoma cancer, he is a 65 white male who is overweight, if that matters, He found out today that it was B-cell lymphoma. He will be testing soon to find out what stage it is in but with only one gland that is visually swollen we think its just stage one. I need answers please.
----------

Sweetie, your Dad needs you. Be strong. Be positive, even when you don't feel like it. Just be there for him. His doctors will take care of the rest. B Cell is the most common type of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. They should tell him the stage and type. Aggressive Lymphomas actually respond better to treatment. Stage one would mean it is all contained on one side of the diaphragm. Mine was stage 2e. [I forget what the 'e' is for] But, I've survived 3 years so far!

how quick should treatment start for diffuse large b cell lymphoma?


diagnosed on Dec 16, but testing began in October. I am beginning to panic, as my appointment with an oncologist is Dec 31. Should I panic?
----------

I liked to start within a week or two of the pathological diagnosis
- so 15 days is not too bad.
Most malignancies - including diffuse large cell lymphomas
- have been developing for several years.
A few weeks is not much in the overall course of the disease process.
I liked to start quickly because of the patient anxiety
- which you are experiencing now.
No reason to panic,
but I understand your stress level in the waiting now that you know.  (+ info)
