As they had been promising in email alerts, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has finally published a small but important free pamphlet entitled Know Your NHL Subtype.

The brochure is designed to be printed by the patient and brought to his or her next doctor's appointment so that the doctor can write down on the brochure the patient's accurate diagnosis, which includes the non-Hodgkin's lymphoma subtype.

The pamphlet includes some basic data and information regarding non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, including a shortlist out of the estimated 60 or more identified subtypes of the most commonly diagnosed NHL subtypes.

It lists indolent subtypes, including:

  • Follicular lymphoma
  • MALT lymphoma
  • Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma
  • Waldenstrom Macroglobulenemia
  • Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma

As well as aggressive subtypes, including

  • Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma
  • Mantle Cell Lymphoma
  • Burkitt's Lymphoma
  • Anaplastic T-Cell Lymphoma
  • Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma

As the brochure notes, knowing your specific subtype can help you gain some control over the disease and therefore help you better cope with the diagnosis. It will also help you better understand the results of certain lab and imaging tests.
