Most individuals with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma alert their doctor after they detect a lump that hasn’t gone away or have experienced symptoms of NHL. When seeking a diagnosis for NHL, you are likely to undergo several tests to confirm whether you are suffering from the disease.
Some of the procedures or tests you may undergo include but are not limited to:
Physical Examination: The physician treating you will check for swollen lymph nodes, including those on your neck, underarm, and groin. They will also check you for a swollen spleen or liver.
Blood Tests: Blood work helps to determine how certain bodily functions are working and whether there are any abnormalities in certain types of cells related to NHL.
Urine Tests: These tests help to uncover any infections.
Imaging Tests: Depending on what your physician recommends, you may undergo imaging tests including X-ray, MRI, CT, or positron emission tomography.
Bone Marrow Biopsy: This test consists of removing sample bone marrow to look for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cells.
Lymph node Testing: A biopsy may be required to remove all or part of a lymph node to test for NHL. The information provided in this testing can also help to determine the type and severity of the illness.
Depending on the results of these tests, a medical team which may consist of oncologists, hematologists, radiologists, and other healthcare professionals will notify you of the aggressiveness of your particular case by classifying it as stage I, II, III, or IV.
