Sloan-Kettering on Lymphoma

Sloan-Kettering has a series of videos, posted a few days ago, that come from an early October forum called Lymphoma: The Latest in Diagnosis and Treatment.  It's a series of 5 videos, lasting about an hour in total. I'm going to post the first one here, called "Understanding Lymphoma."

The panel consists of three of the big names at Sloan in blood cancers.

It's an interesting series, though I would caution against paying too close attention to it. It's about lymphoma -- all 75 types of lymphoma -- Hodgkin's and Non-hodgkin's, B cell and T cell, indolent and aggressive -- break it down any way you like. So if you're feeling particularly cancer-nerdy, it's a nice, but very incomplete overview of lymphomas.

Just pay real close attention, and make sure that whatever they are talking about is really relevant to your situation, and not someone else's.

If you want to focus on one segment in particular, go with "Advances in Treatment Options for Lymphoma." Even if, say, radiation isn't likely to be in your future, it's always fun to watch cancer experts get excited about future treatments.

(I know this is a short one; expect the next few posts to be short. Lots to do as the holidays speed up toward us. They'll get longer soon.)

I feel the same way with Cathy! oh by the way, after watching the videos by Sloan Kettering, I still find the videos from the symposium Follicular Lymphoma: on the road to cure easier to understand
