At Lymphoma Canada, we strive to provide lymphoma cancer patients with information to better inform decisions regarding diagnosis and care. If you or a loved one have recently been diagnosed with lymphoma, you probably have many questions about the disease. Our Patient Resource Manuals help you to understand the nature of lymphoma and what to expect from treatments, including any possible side effects. The more you know about your disease, the more confident you will be when making decisions with your doctor about your care and wellbeing.
