You’ve just been diagnosed with lymphoma. What should you do now? If you’d like to consult with specialists at one of the nation’s foremost cancer centers about your next steps, consider visiting Moffitt Cancer Center. Located near Orlando, Florida, in Tampa, Moffitt features a Malignant Hematology Program that offers the latest advances in treatment and compassionate supportive care for patients with Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas.
How is lymphoma treated at Moffitt?
Lymphoma treatment at Moffitt is tailored to the specific needs of each patient. The hematologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists and other experts who make up our lymphoma program collaborate to develop individualized treatment plans. Several factors can influence a patient’s ideal course of treatment, such as the lymphoma type (Hodgkin or non-Hodgkin), form (B-cell or T-cell) and stage. Generally speaking, though, lymphoma treatment plans often include a combination of one or more of the following therapies:
- Radioimmunotherapy (RIT)
- Targeted radiation therapy
- Stem cell transplantation through Moffitt’s Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant and Cellular Immunotherapy Program
Moffitt also spearheads an ambitious clinical trial program that gives eligible patients access to the latest developments in lymphoma treatment before those options are made widely available. Our research efforts have resulted in our designation as a Comprehensive Cancer Center from the National Cancer Institute, and we are the only such center based in Florida.
At Moffitt, we understand that driving down the interstate to receive lymphoma treatment can present a few logistical challenges. That’s why our partner hotels offer reduced rates to our patients and their families who travel to Moffitt from Orlando or another city. These hotels comply with our strict hygiene standards and are dedicated to the comfort of our patients.
