Beat Blood Cancer Lymphoma Cancer Support
Cancer remains one of the biggest killers in the United Kingdom and one in three of us will suffer from it or be directly affected by it at some point in their lives. Lymphoma cancer, luckily, is one of the most treatable cancers with an 80% survival rate. However, the process of being diagnosed, identifying and going through treatment and waiting to hear if you have beaten it can be a difficult and stressful process, not just for you as a cancer sufferer, but also for those around you. Thankfully, there are support groups available through different organisations and charities that can give you a vast array of information and help.
Lymphoma cancer is one of the blood cancers that affects the lymph nodes. It usually manifests itself in areas such as the armpits and groin, but can also affect internal organs such as the spleen and lungs. The three types of standard treatment for lymphoma cancer are chemotherapy, surgery and radio therapy.
