Oh dear - as if they haven't had enough lately!

Hopefully he will do well on treatment - as did Tim Taylor, husband of Lady Helen Windsor who was in his late 30's when he was diagnosed

I didn't know Tim Taylor had it. So it is curable?

treatment can be pretty effective:

Quote
Outcome overall and by stage
The treatment of Hodgkin lymphoma is often very successful and many people are cured. Overall, more than 80 out of every 100 people (80%) diagnosed in England and Wales will live for at least 5 years after diagnosis.

As with many other types of cancer, the outcome depends on how advanced your cancer is when it is diagnosed. In other words, the stage of your cancer.

Early stage Hodgkin lymphoma means stage 1 or 2 disease. Between 91 and 94 out of every 100 people (91 to 94%) diagnosed with early stage Hodgkin lymphoma will live for at least 5 years.

With the more advanced stage 3 and 4 Hodgkin lymphoma between 59 and 90 out of every 100 people (59 to 90%) will live for at least 5 years.

The type of Hodgkin lymphoma will affect how successful treatment is likely to be. Younger people also tend to do better. For example, the most recent 5 year survival rates in people aged 15 to 49 were about 90%. In people aged over 70 the 5 year survival was about 30%.

But hard going ... http://www.dailymail.co.u...cked-husbands-ordeal.html

Sometimes.

Such sad news. Again, thank goodness the family is so very close. I imagine Bea will be as supportive to Margriet as Margriet has been to her.

Just wanted to be clear that Prince Bernhard has non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), which includes a wide variety of blood cancers; in fact, it includes any lymphoma other than Hodgkin's lymphoma. NLH vary greatly in aggressiveness and the label of NHL doesn't really mean much until the cancer is further classified.

I believe Tim Taylor had Hodgkin lymphoma, which is very, very, treatable as it is responds well to radiation therapy. Five year survival rates for HL are over 90%.

Good Lord. The poor family! Best wishes to him and his family - doesn't matter what cancer, or how close the family may be; dealing with it is so very hard.

Unfortunately, you are right.  You can't compare this to the treatable Hodgkin's disease - this is a much rougher form of the disease.

I know from experience that most of such NHL lymphomas are treatable, if not all of them are curable. If they are aggressive, they are potentially very dangerous but curable. The indolent forms are not all curable ( the treatment stops the illness for a long time, but it eventually comes back)  but treatable and, being slow and not aggressive, if diagnosed early the patient might go on for years without requiring treatment. The indolent forms are more common among elderly patients. I suspect Bernhard's is aggressive, or he wouldn't have had to seek immediate treatment. My heart goes out t o him and his famiy.
