Does B cell lymphoma cause anemia?

Can anemia be caused by lymphoma?

Lymph allows white blood cells (lymphocytes) to circulate. When white blood cells multiply abnormally, they cause masses to form and lymph nodes become enlarged. Some lymphomas may affect the bone marrow and interfere with its making of blood cells. The result is anemia, or low red blood cell count.

Which lymphoma causes anemia?

Anemia is a frequent finding of Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL) diagnosis. It is usually mild, with hemoglobin levels between 10 and 12 g/dl; it is rarely (<10% of cases) a result of bone marrow infiltration; and it displays the characteristics of the anemia of chronic disease due to abnormalities in iron metabolism.

How long can you live with lymphoma without treatment?

It’s an aggressive but treatable cancer that can involve lymph nodes and other organs. This is the second most common type on non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. It’s slow growing and usually starts in the lymph nodes. Generally involves lymph nodes, bone marrow, spleen, and the gastrointestinal system.

Which is worse B-cell or T cell lymphoma?

Peripheral T-cell lymphomas have a worse prognosis than B-cell lymphomas: a prospective study of 361 immunophenotyped patients treated with the LNH-84 regimen.

How long can you live with B-cell lymphoma?

Extranodal marginal zone B-cell lymphomas have a slightly better outcome than the other types. Almost 90 out of 100 people with this type of marginal zone lymphoma (90%) survive for 5 years or more after they are diagnosed.
