Non Hopkins (Malt)

I have been diagnosed with NHL MALT, after all the tests the visit to the general oncologist said look and wait. He wants me to wait 6 months. Is that common for MALT. I am a retired Oncology Nurse so I know medically about NHL.

Also should I seek a specialist in NHL or stick with a general oncologist?

I would see a specialist oncologist!!! I say from experiance, i had 2 that gave differant opinions, so i decided to go to sloane and got a completly differant answer, stem cell transplant. When i called original oncologist... to ask about a stem cell transplant, i NEVER GOT A CALL BACK!!! ONE THING IVE LEARNED, EDUCATE YOURSELF AND BE ASSERTIVE, DRS. ARE NOT GOD!!!
