Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma

Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma

Spleen nodules of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma  is a cancer of B cells. It is the most common form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma among adults. DLBCL can arise in virtually any part of the body and, depending on various factors, is often a very aggressive malignancy. The first sign of this illness is typically the observation of a rapidly growing mass or tissue infiltration that is sometimes associated with systemic B symptoms, e.g. fever, weight loss, and night sweats. Diagnosis of DLBCL is made by removing a portion of the tumor through a biopsy, and then examining this tissue using a microscope. Usually a hematopathologist makes this diagnosis. Numerous subtypes of DLBCL have been identified which differ in their clinical presentations, biopsy findings, aggressive characteristics, prognoses, and recommended treatments.
