Lymphosarcoma is another malignant disease
Lymphosarcoma is another malignant disease affecting the lymphoid and lymph node. It is similar to leukemia and in some respects also resembles Hodgkin’s disease, especially in children. Enlarged lymph nodes like lumps maybe seen and felt on the side of the neck. One of these should be removed by surgery and studied by a pathologist.
If lymphosarcoma is found, the other enlarged nodes should be removed and the whole area treated with X-ray therapy. ACTH and cortisone often bring relief to those who are seriously ill with this disease. When the disease is widespread the outlook is not good, but each new discovery of medical science is bringing us nearer the day when all such disease can finally be brought under control.
