Dr. Rosen explains how a woman can find out if her doctor is qualified to care for her lymphoma diagnosis.
That’s very difficult. There are some resources, such as the American Cancer Society or the National Cancer Institute, which will typically make referrals to comprehensive cancer centers. We are part of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. That is an organization that brings together all of the elite cancer centers from throughout the country and has a great deal of information on its website that’s focused on appropriate guidelines and standards of care.
