On active monitoring for lymphoma?

Lymphoma doesn’t always need treatment straightaway. Instead, you might have a period of active monitoring (also known as watch and wait). We're here to support you, whether you want to learn more about lymphoma, hear from other people affected by lymphoma, or find tips to help you live well, physically, practically and emotionally.
