FAQ: What is the treatment for nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin’s lymphoma?
Nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NLPHL) presents with “popcorn cells,” a type of Reed-Sternberg cells. The best method of treatment for NLPHL depends on the person’s overall health and age.
In the early stages, the person may not require treatment and enter a “watch and wait” period which involves active surveillance and regular blood tests to track the disease. If the person requires treatment, options include radiation, chemotherapy and targeted drug therapy as well as surgery to remove the affected lymph nodes.
