Hello Guys! I suspect having NHL. There is a swollen lymph node on my neck. It's first occurrence reduced in size but later increased again and remains relatively constant in size albeit soft now. I experience a bit of chest pain when i swallow food and breath in...

My question is: Is NHL cancer a death sentence?

First what kind of NHL do you have? Their over at least 20 could high 60 kinds NHL. Your lymph nodes can grow in size &shrink .They call it was wax & waning. A lot off NHL is very much treatable . Some of NHL their no cure but control for many years & most likely you die from something else.

I just ask your oncologists doctor they should have information. The doctor will know who does lab test is pathologist to tell what kind of NHL. They are very important this were you want to have a really experienced pathologist doctor to do pathological study done to determine the Wright NHL. A lot patients do get second opinion from major cancer Center because NHL can be difficult to DX & need pathologist who just does blood cancef all day long.. This most important alot feel. If your local oncologists & pathologist gotten wright DX after second opinion I myself stay local unless it the kind heard to treat. A gain your oncologist &pathologist should know your kind NHL. Ask for copy of their report from your doctors. Keep all of use posted how you doing &if you have any questions.
