NHL is not a disease

When first diagnosed, many patients are told they have non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). The problem; NHL isn’t a disease, it’s a series of more than 60 subtypes.

Each subtype requires different diagnostic evaluation and treatment approaches. This ensures patients receive the right treatment at the right time for the right subtype.

Empower Patients
