Is there anyone on this board who can tell me what the T Cell variant of Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma means? I find lots of info on Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma but hardly anything on the T cell variant and exactly what it means regarding the disease. Thank you.

I can tell you there are two main types of immune cells, B and T cell. I can also tell you that B cell lymphoma is much more common and they have many more weapons in the arsenal to fight it. T cell lymphoma is more rare and they are still finding new sub types of this disease. They have not really figured out how to use many of the therapies they use on B cell to fight T Cell Lymphoma. Find a great research hospital, follow their recommendations and eat right and walk every day. I am a 9 year AITL, T Cell Lymphoma Survivor

Thank you so much for your reply. CAn you tell me what your original outlook was when diagnosed? Did they stage your cancer? What kind of treatments have you had?  Thank you so much. It is very rare to find someone with this disease. Thank

you.
