Hello Doctor …. I want to ask you about the diagnosis of Malignant lymphoma that attacks children …. the cause is anything … and can last for many years: ‘(
Hello Idea, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Malignant lymphoma is a cancer that attacks the lymph nodes. This cancer is almost the same as other cancers which are caused by mutations in the DNA of lymphocyte cells where these mutations cause cell growth to be out of control.
Several factors can increase the likelihood of these mutations occurring, such as:
Age in certain lymphoma enis
Has been infected with an Epstein-Barr virus
Weak immune system (such as getting HIV or using immune-lowering drugs)
Regarding how long a child can survive with the disease, there is no exact number, and in the case of cancer, generally a patient's ability to survive is expressed in 5 years of survival rate, ie how many people are able to survive in the next 5 years who have a cancerous stage same.
Based on existing research to date, the higher the stadium suffered, the lower the survival rate. However, the faster and more effective the therapy is given, the survival rate can increase significantly.
I hope this helps.
