Lymphoma in children and young people

Treatment of lymphoma has changed dramatically over the years and is usually successful. However, the time that follows your child’s diagnosis will still be difficult. You do not have to carry the weight of the situation on your own. We have plenty of information and guidance. You can also ask your medical team for guidance.

Side effects of lymphoma treatment

Treatments for lymphoma affect everyone differently. Each treatment or drug has different possible side effects which also vary in how severe they are. Some people have only mild side effects while others have more troublesome effects. Although some side effects for each treatment are common, not everyone gets them.
