|SEER Stage||5-Year Relative Survival Rate|
|All SEER stages combined||89%|
Is large B-cell lymphoma aggressive?
Although there are more than 60 types of NHL, diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common type, making up about 30 percent of all lymphomas. In the United States, DLBCL affects about 7 out of 100,000 people each year. DLBCL is a fast-growing, aggressive form of NHL.
Is B-cell lymphoma worse than T cell lymphoma?
Peripheral T-cell lymphomas have a worse prognosis than B-cell lymphomas: a prospective study of 361 immunophenotyped patients treated with the LNH-84 regimen.
How fast does B-cell lymphoma spread?
Symptoms can start or get worse in just a few weeks. The most common symptom is one or more painless swellings. These swellings can grow very quickly.
The five-year survival rate after treatment is 69% for adults and up to 90% for children; the 10-year relative survival rate is 59%. The addition of immunotherapy to standard treatment for NHLs may further improve survival rates so that life expectancy may move toward normal.
What are the stages of B cell lymphoma?
Primary mediastinal B-cell lymphoma. This lymphoma, which starts in the space between the lungs (the mediastinum), is treated like early stage diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. A common treatment is 6 courses of CHOP chemo plus rituximab (R-CHOP). This may be followed by radiation to the mediastinum.
What is the prognosis for diffuse large B cell lymphoma?
Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. However, the usual treatment for each of these is chemotherapy, often in combination with an antibody targeted at the tumor cells. Through these treatments, more than half of patients with DLBCL can be cured, and the overall five-year survival rate for older adults is around 58%.
