Advanced diagnosis and treatment
Mayo Clinic pathologists who specialize in diseases of the blood (hematopathologists) are experienced with all types of lymphomas. They work closely with your care team to ensure an accurate diagnosis of this complex disease, which has many variations and rare forms. Research shows that expert review by pathologists who see many lymphoma cases is key to developing an appropriate treatment plan.
Mayo Clinic doctors work with you to review all of your treatment options and to choose the treatment that best suits your lymphoma and takes into account your needs and goals. Treatments offered to people with lymphoma include bone marrow transplant, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy and CAR-T cell therapy, among others.
And because Mayo Clinic is a leader in lymphoma research, you also have access to the latest treatments by way of clinical research studies (clinical trials). The Early Cancer Therapeutics Group at Mayo Clinic offers people whose cancers haven't responded to standard chemotherapy or other treatments the opportunity to join an early-phase clinical trial of a potential new treatment.
In addition, each week Mayo Clinic lymphoma specialists hold a multidisciplinary meeting to discuss treatment options (tumor board). These meetings include radiation oncologists, hematologists, radiologists, hematopathologists and others from Mayo Clinic campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota. So no matter which Mayo Clinic campus you go to for your care, you benefit from the collective expertise of the lymphoma team.
Survivorship clinics for follow-up care
Mayo Clinic offers services for people who have completed lymphoma treatment through cancer survivorship clinics. Follow-up medical care is important. The lymphoma survivorship clinic offers evaluation for physical and psychological side effects, as well as provides plans for follow-up care and healthy living after cancer treatment. Sometimes follow-up care involves blood tests or imaging studies.
Nationally recognized expertise
Mayo Clinic hematologists are respected for their extensive experience treating people with all types of lymphoma, including the most common and rare forms. Each year Mayo Clinic doctors care for more than 7,600 people with lymphoma.
