'Watch & Wait' for Lymphoma & CLL
Some types of lymphoma and CLL grow slowly and may not need treatment right away. If this is the case for you, your doctor might suggest active monitoring or 'Watch & Wait', where your lymphoma is monitored until you need treatment.
Shannon Nixon, a Nurse Practitioner at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, joined Lymphoma Canada to discuss the clinical evidence and applications for Watch & Wait, some of the challenges faced by patients and ways to manage the uncertainty during this time.
