The What Is Lymphoma page covers the group of cancers described as adult non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma...the causes, signs, symptoms and treatment, along with self-help steps you can take to fight these cancers.

What Is Lymphoma?

Lymphoma Signs And Symptoms:

Lymphoma is generally described as a cancer that strikes in your immune system first.  Because of this, the list of potential symptoms is endless and the possibilities of mis-diagnosis are mind-boggling.  Here is the short list of signs and symptoms:  fever, sweating, fatigue, weight loss, painless swelling of lymph nodes (neck, underarms, groin or stomach), night sweats, rash, itchy skin, pain in chest, abdomen or bones for no known reason.  Here are some of the top books to help explain what lymphoma is.

Lymphoma Causes:

While usually there are no direct causes, factors that increase the risk of lymphoma include older, male, white, weakened immune system (from disease, medications, surgery or malnutrition), pesticide exposure, high fat diet.

Lymphoma Treatment:

Treatment depends on how advanced the disease is when it's diagnosed, how fast it grows and whether it is found on both sides or your diaphragm (muscle layer between chest and abdomen.  With slow growing early stage cancer, radiation directed at the cancer site and/or nearby lymph nodes is preferred.  With a more aggressive or more advanced form of lymphoma, the treatment becomes more complex, including options for chemo, biological, radioactive biological and/or radiation therapies.  As the extent of the lymphoma development increases, so do the combinations of therapies and the number of clinical trials.

Lymphoma Self Help:

If you've been diagnosed with a malignant Cancer, always retest and get a second opinion from another doctor.  Once confirmed, work with your doctor to make sure nothing you do interferes with the medical treatment.  Get the specific diagnosis in writing, including the name and stage of the Cancer.  Search the National Cancer Institute and other websites to learn all that's being done for your cancer.  Print relevant pages and make a list of specific questions for your doctor.  Write down his answers and check them on the web.  I know the doctor has a good education, but this is your health and your life.  The actions to help prevent Cancer below can often be used in stronger doses to fight cancer, but check with your doctor.

To help prevent Cancer:  If your family or lifestyle (see causes, above) puts you at a higher risk, you should consider these things essential to help prevent Cancer:  Follow a low fat diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.  Fill your life with aerobic activity and exercise.  Make sure you're drinking enough water.  Supplement your diet with natural Multi-Vitamins and Multi-Minerals, along with extra doses of the following to strengthen your immune system:

Antioxidants; including Beta Carotene, Flavonoids, Lycopene,  Vitamin A, Zinc, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and CoQ10.
Organic Germanium; 300-450mg divided into 3 doses a day.
Fiber; 12-15 grams extra from vegetable sources or supplements.
Garlic; 3 cloves per day.
Omega 3; 3 per day, 1 at beginning of each meal.
Lecithin; taken with the Omega 3.
Lipoic Acid

Total Healing:

Cancer is at best frightening, frustrating and worst, fatal.  We both know there are no guaranteed cures or quick fixes, whether medicine, nutrition, herbs or anything else.  Many illnesses are "incurable" from the medical standpoint.  Complete healing is possible...including mind, body and spirit...from God.  If you want God's help with this or any problem, go to Help From God.
