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 and immunotherapy, 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).

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 Jacksonville, Florida, Scottsdale, Arizona, and Rochester, Minnesota. So no matter which Mayo Clinic campus you go to for your care, you benefit from the collective expertise of the lymphoma team.

Mayo Clinic offers services for people who have completed lymphoma treatment through cancer survivorship clinics. Follow-up medical care is important.
