I'm 44 years old and have recently been diagnosed with splenic marginal zone lymphoma, a form of NHL that is low grade, stage iv. My cancer presents itself in the spleen and bone marrow only. I have been told several forms of treatment for this and because it is rare, I am wondering if anyone out there has this particular type of lymphoma or knows anyone who does and, if so, how they are being treated for it. I'm currently undergoing chemo to reduce the size of my spleen but have been told that I could remove the spleen or do a mini stem cell transplant. I would greatly appreciate any information anyone has. Thanks in advance!!!
