Although the LC Global Patient Survey indicated that awareness of lymphomas has increased, misdiagnosis remains the same from the 2010 results. It is critical to educate Practitioners and General Oncologists about lymphoma to reduce this threat to patients.
An excellent resource is the GP Algorithm and the Watch and Wait Management of Indolent Lymphomas found on this website. The articles were produced by one of the LC members, the Leukemia Foundation of Australia and reviewed and approved by their medical advisory board. Click here to view and download the posters.
Please pass these documents on as an excellent guide to diagnosis and next steps especially for the newly diagnosed patients.
