Lymphoma is a cancer of lymphatic system, in which the T and B lymphocytes as part of the immune system designed to protect the body against infections and diseases start to divide faster than normal, or their life expectancy is becoming longer than anticipated nature.
For each specific type of disease we select a narrow field haematologist, which makes the most effective treatment and help improve the life quality of our patients.
Leading experts on the treatment of diseases of the circulatory and lymphatic systems in Israel are:
Prof. Ella Naparstek – The main clinical practice of the professor in the field of malignant hematological diseases (leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma), bone marrow transplantation and cancer immunotherapy.
If you or any of your relatives were diagnosed with such disease, please contact us. We accept patients for the treatment of all disease stages, any kind of tumor location and malignancies in the body.
Lymphoma may develop in the lymph nodes, spleen, bone marrow, blood or other organs, gradually forming a lymphoid tumor cell.
The main symptoms of the disease increase inflammation of the lymph nodes, sometimes accompanied by itching, fever, night sweats.
There are two main types of disease – Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. There are also lymphoma low-grade and high-grade. In the case of disease with a low degree usually without symptoms do not require the initial treatment. Need constant supervision of an experienced physician who will prescribe proper treatment.
Lymphoblastic leukemia – a disease in 40 % of cases develop in children.
Follicular lymphoma (SS / CB, or nodular lymphoma syndrome Brill – Simmersa ) – one of the most common types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma occurs in 40 % of the adult population.
Diffuse B-cell lymphoma – non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma view strikes usually elderly, mainly in the age of 70, rarely children and young people. The disease responds well to treatment competently chosen chemotherapy.
Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) – a rare form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma occurs in 6 % of cases from all kinds of diseases.
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia – the most common in men older than 50 years, handed down to children.
MALT lymphoma (MALToma) is a form of lymphoma involving the mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT), often the stomach, but can suffer almost any organ mucosa.
Burkitt’s lymphoma (or “Burkitt’s tumor”, Burkitt’s lymphoma or “Malignant lymphoma, Burkitt’s type”) is a type of cancer of the lymphatic system, a high degree of aggression.
Mycosis fungoides (or granuloma syndrome aliber – Bazin) – the most common type of lymphoid system which affects the skin.
Peripheral T- cell lymphoma – one of the most aggressive forms of non-Hodgkin ‘s lymphoma, which affects the two individual leukocyte types – B cells and T cells, causing them to develop properly. There are two types of this kind of disease – T-zone lymphoma and lymphoepithelial lymphoma (Lennert’s type)
Nodular sclerosis (chlamydia) – the most common form of Hodgkin’s lymphoma which occurs in young adults, mostly from 28 years.
Mixed-cell lymphoma – the second most common type of Hodgkin’s disease which is found in men and in most cases, associated with Epstein-Barr virus.
- Blood test
Biopsy + histological examination
Consultation with a hematologist
Prognosis and treatment of this disease is different for Hodgkin’s lymphoma and non-Hodgkin all kinds and also depends on the aggressiveness of the disease. Paradoxically, the disease with a high degree of malignancy is more treatable and have a successful prediction.
- • Chemotherapy
- • Radiotherapy
- • Bone marrow transplantation
- • Immunotherapy for lymphoma
Method of treatment is determined by the physician based on the results of the medical tests in Israel.
T-cell lymphoma (or T-lymphoblastic lymphoma) occurs when lymphocytes changewhich affects division and proliferation of these cells. This process leads to the formation of increasing numbers of abnormal cells.
MALT lymphoma (maltoma)
MALT lymphoma (mucous associated lymphoma tissue) or maltoma – a form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma that occurs in about 8%, it is also a third type of lymphoma the most common of all NHL. These forms of lymphoma grow slowly and usually persist for a long time at the site of its origination.
