Can Someone Explain The "watch And Wait" Reasoning For Treatment?
A MyLymphomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

I was just diagnosed a week ago and don't meet with my doctor to discuss next steps until after the new year. He mentioned possibly doing "watch and wait" method and I've read a lot that backs that up, which really surprises me. Why would you wait until things got worse to pursue any type of treatment?

Has Anyone Been Put On The Wait And See Program Without Being Given An Official Diagnosis?
A MyLymphomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have had swollen lymphnodes in my groin for about 15 months, my right armpit for about 4 months, and in my neck which the hema-oncologist discovered about almost 6 weeks ago.
