Dr. Rosen explains how patients with cutaneous lymphoma should advocate for their health when they visit their health care providers and shares how often this lymphoma is fatal.
The most important thing that the individual can do is to make sure she is getting care by the appropriate experts, someone who has got the knowledge base to deliver the treatment that’s necessary.
Cutaneous lymphomas can be fatal, though with modern treatment the vast majority of patients have the opportunity to live decades with control of their disease.
