The Truth About One of America’s Rarest Blood Cancers

PRWeb Friday, 12 October 2018
Follicular lymphoma may be talked about less than other cancers, yet it is one of the most common slow-growing forms of non-Hodgkin lymphoma – a type of blood cancer that starts in white blood cells and affects the immune system. Dr. Muhammad “Hassan” Imam, MD, with Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute (FCS) partnered with YourUpdateTV and D S Simon Media to discuss the need to raise awareness of this more rare but serious form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

NEW YORK (PRWEB) October 12, 2018

In 2018, over 170,000 people in the United States are expected to be diagnosed with blood cancers. 1.Follicular lymphoma is one of the most common forms of slow-growing non-Hodgkin lymphoma, yet it is considered a rare disease.2

Because slow-growing cases have few or no symptoms until the disease progresses, most patients are diagnosed at an advanced stage. What’s more, misdiagnosis of follicular lymphoma can occur, because the symptoms associated with it can resemble the symptoms of other conditions.

Dr. Muhammad “Hassan” Imam, MD, with Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute (FCS) partnered with YourUpdateTV and D S Simon Media to discuss the need to raise awareness of this more rare but serious form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Dr. Imam addressed warning signs of follicular lymphoma that should not go unnoticed and the impact of the disease as it progresses.

During the nationwide television and radio interviews Dr. Imam discussed:· What non-Hodgkin lymphoma is and what the risk factors for the disease
· How prevalent the disease is and who it affects
· Recent treatment advances in follicular lymphoma
· Why it’s important to talk about follicular lymphoma symptoms and generate awareness among patients and physicians
· Resources where people can go to learn more about non-Hodgkin lymphoma
