Small lymphocytic lymphoma is a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). This information should ideally be read with our information about chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), which is essentially the same condition and is treated in the same way. Sometimes small lymphocytic leukaemia is called CLL/SLL.
We hope this information answers your questions. If you have any further questions, you can ask your doctor or nurse at the hospital where you are having treatment.
