Surgical Therapy

The role of surgery in NHL treatment is limited. It should be performed on patients in whom there is good reason to believe that total resection can be achieved (e.g., localized bowel disease) without a mutilating procedure (e.g., amputation, extensive maxillofacial surgery, exenterations) or an excessively risky procedure. Patients with widespread lymphoma are not eligible for surgical resection, but the presence of a single nonresectable mass in addition to a totally resectable mass will not exclude patients from surgical treatment.
