    My mother-in-law has just been diagnosed with NHL aged 67.  She found a lump in her mouth and is now undergoing tests and scans to see whether it has spread further.  Can anyone tell me more about this disease as I have only come across Hodkins Lymphoma and I know that prognosis wise they are different.

    She is a very scared and frightened lady.

      I'm very sorry for your sadness...I don't know much about NHL but I do know support is a must. I'll be thinking of you & your mother in-law.  Take Care.

      Thanks for the link. I know of Macmillan and how good they are,just didn't think of them yet as I only tend to associate them with imminent terminal illness.

    I have it and have been fighting it since 1993. Mine is a low grade and incurable. There is good treatment for it now. Mine returned this last spring, but I am not worried. It is a drag and some seniors cannot handle the treatments for it.
    Is her's a low grade, intermediate  or high grade? Best of luck to her.

      They believe at this stage that it is a low grade, but she is awaiting results of the staging scan to see how advanced it is.
