Supportive and other treatments

These treatments are used to treat NHL. They can also help you feel better.

  • Steroid therapy for non-Hodgkin lymphoma

    You may be given steroids alongside chemotherapy to treat lymphoma – and help reduce sickness caused by treatment.

  • Blood transfusions

    Some cancers or cancer treatments can cause anaemia, which is a low number of red blood cells. Blood transfusions are used to treat anaemia.

  • G-CSF

    Having chemotherapy can make you more prone to infections. G-CSF helps you make more white blood cells to reduce that risk.

  • Platelet transfusions

    Platelets are cells that help to stop bleeding. Some cancers or cancer treatments can lead to low platelets and you may need a platelet transfusion.
