There are varied treatment options to remove or destroy cancer within the lymphatic system and nearby tissues. These may include surgical processes, therapies or a combination of both.
- Surgical process: A doctor aims to remove the tumour and some of the tissues in the surrounding areas where cancer may have spread
- Radiation Therapy: Involves the use of high-energy waves to kill cancer cells
- Chemotherapy: Involves the use of powerful medicines to kill cancer cells
- Targeted Therapy: Targets cancer specific genes, proteins, or the tissue environment that contributes to cancer growth and survival
- Immunotherapy: Involves the use of medicines that prompt the body's immune system or natural defenses to destroy cancer
- Antibody Therapy: Involves the insertion of synthetic antibodies into the bloodstream to combat cancer's antigens.
- Stem-cell Transplantation: Damage bone marrow is restored using stem-cell transplantation, following high-dose Chemotherapy or Radiation Therapy.
- Steroid Injection: Steroids are injected in the affected area to treat Lymphoma.
A patient might get Chemotherapy, Hormone Therapy, or Targeted Therapy along with surgery or radiation. This approach will help in killing the residual cancer cells, during other forms of treatment.
