Many lymphoma & CLL patients experience apprehension and discomfort before completing a scan or waiting to receive test results from their doctor. This is commonly referred to as “Scan Anxiety”. In this webinar, Lymphoma Canada will provide a brief overview of the diagnostic tests patients can receive to confirm a diagnosis or to determine a patient’s response to treatment. The second part of this webinar will include strategies to cope with the overwhelming feelings that can arise for lymphoma & CLL patients.
