Lymphoma

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has announced that he has advanced B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma and is facing 18 weeks of chemotherapy treatments. Lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system, part of the body’s immune system, accounts for about 4 percent of all cancers; an estimated 71,000 new cases are diagnosed each year in the United States.

University of Maryland hematologist/oncologist Dr. Arnob Banerjee, who is not involved in the governor’s medical care, specializes in treating this cancer. In this interview, he will explain the different types of lymphoma, how they are treated and what patients can expect after receiving treatment. Dr. Banerjee will also talk about the latest developments in research.

Do you have a question about lymphoma? Send us your question via Twitter @MPTNews #yourhealth. Then watch Direct Connection on June 29 at 7:30 p.m. to see if we use your question on the show.
