Re: t-cell lymphoma, cutaneous

The only experience I have with it is that I know my grandpa had it but he had 5 different types of cancer at the same time and that just happened to be one of them. He did chemotherapy to treat it but the cancers were all advanced before they were found (stage 4 and 5) so unfortunately the only thing chemo did was just give us more time with him. It sounds like your husbands has been caught early enough he should have better results from treatments!

Good luck and I hope everything goes well!

Re: t-cell lymphoma, cutaneous

Sorry to hear about the diagnosis. It is in the early stages though.
What brought him to find out he was ill with lymphoma?

He had an itchy rash that wouldn't go away after weeks of different creams from the dermatologist. After a biopsy, last week this dx came back. The doc wants to treat it with strong steriod creams and see how this works. I've been researching this, it seems treatable in this early stage, to keep it under control.

Re: t-cell lymphoma, cutaneous

Could you tell me your husband's symptoms before he was diagnosed? I have a terrible deep itch and think it's cutaneous t-cell lymphoma and would like to talk to someone about their symptoms. I'm new on this site and am searching for help. Thank you
