Does anyone have any experience with this? My husband was diagnosed with this after having a lump removed from his arm. The papework says: "Diagnosis-Monoclonal B-cell lymphoproliferative disorder most consistent with marginal zone lymphoma with increased large cells"... It was a cutaneous lump that was removed from an area that had another lump removed in 1995(that diagnosis was cutanous immunocytoma...).Anyway, my husband's cancer doc presented his case to the tumor board and it was agreed that he should see a specialist in Seattle. Well, my husband is under the impression that since the lump is gone, the cancer is gone, which could very well be true. I asked his doc why the recommendation if he is fine and she said she just would feel better about a second opinion as to treat him in some way (chemo, etc.). Does anyone have any input on this type of lymphoma? Should we pursue it a bit more and have some more testing done?
