The best treatment of lymphoma depends on its type, stage and other factors and needs to be tailored for individual patients.
Slow growing (low grade) lymphomas may require either, no treatment or surgery, radiotherapy or gentle chemotherapy (often in tablet form). Some stomach lymphomas can be cured with simple antibiotics. Faster growing (intermediate or high grade) lymphomas usually require injected chemotherapy with or without radiotherapy.
Hodgkin’s disease usually requires injected chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy.
