Supportive Care

While cancer may be a significant part of your life, treating it should not become your life.

Over the past decade, while enormous progress has been made in the treatment for lymphoid diseases, the advances in symptom management should not be overlooked. Improved treatment of multiple symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, pain, constipation, and low blood counts have made it possible to give most therapies in the outpatient setting.

The nursing staff at the Center for Lymphoid Malignancies is educated on the most up to date literature regarding treating symptoms, enabling you to undergo treatments while engaging in the other aspects of your life, with as little interruption as possible. The nurses and nurse practitioners at the center will spend as much time as you need answering questions and educating you about the medications you are receiving and side effects you should be aware of. By maximizing the supportive care you receive while undergoing your therapy, you will be able to continue your treatment with optimal timing.
