Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
There is no known way to prevent non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Most people with NHL do not have known risk factors.
During treatment for any stage of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), you can use home treatment to help manage the side effects that may accompany NHL or its treatment. Home treatment may be all that is needed to manage the following common problems. If your doctor has given you instructions or medicines to treat these symptoms, be sure to follow them. In general, healthy habits such as eating a balanced diet and getting enough sleep and exercise may help control your symptoms.
Other issues that may arise include:
Many people with lymphoma face emotional issues because of their disease or its treatment.
Not all forms of cancer or cancer treatment cause pain. If pain occurs, many treatments are available to relieve it. If your doctor has given you instructions or medicines to treat pain, be sure to follow them. You may use home treatment for pain to improve your physical and mental well-being. Be sure to discuss with your doctor any home treatment you use for pain.
