What if first-time treatment doesn’t work?

Cancers that aren’t cured or return after first-time treatment are treated the same. If the

cancer isn’t causing symptoms, testing to assess cancer growth over time is an option. If

symptoms are present, rituximab may be received. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy

may be added.

What care should I receive after treatment?

Follow-up care starts when there are no signs of cancer after treatment. It should consist

of health tests that check for cancer and any problems caused by cancer treatment. It’s

also important to get care that will help to prevent other illnesses.

64

How do I decide between options?

Ask your doctors many questions. Also, you could get a second opinion, attend support

groups, and compare pros and cons.
