Cutaneous Lymphoma

white cellsCutaneous T-cell lymphoma is a disease caused when T-lymphocytes become malignant and affect the skin. T-lymphocytes are the infection-fighting white blood cells in the lymph system that kill harmful bacteria in the body, among other things. Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma usually is a slow-growing cancer that often develops over many years. The two most common types of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma are mycosis fungoides and the Sezary syndrome.

Our specialists will evaluate you and determine a personal treatment plan to meet your individual needs. Types of treatment may include:

  • Chemotherapy - treatment with drugs to destroy cancer cells.
  • Other drug therapies (retinoids, targeted drugs)
  • Radiation therapy - uses a radiation machine that emits x-rays to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors.
  • Photodynamic therapy - uses a certain type of light and a special chemical to kill cancer cells.
