Brain lymphoma, also known as primary cerebral lymphoma or primary central nervous system lymphoma, is a rare, highly aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma cancer originating in the lymph tissue (white blood cells) of the brain or spinal cord, and can also be found in the eyes. This type of cancer can be treated effectively and even cured if it is found early.

Brain Lymphoma Treatment

Considering the aggressive spread of this kind of cancer, open surgery is often not deemed an effective treatment option.
Once the diagnosis is confirmed by Stereotactic biopsy, the standard treatment of brain lymphoma can include:

  • Radiation
  • Chemotherapy with or without stem cells
  • Steroid therapy
  • Surgery, only in selected cases

A stem cell transplant may be recommended as consolidation therapy following the completion of chemotherapy. The goal of consolidation therapy is to eradicate any residual lymphoma cells and prevent the recurrence of the disease. If  lymphoma responds positively to initial chemotherapy, and you are deemed physically fit for the procedure, a stem cell transplant with high-dose chemotherapy may be considered. This approach involves using high doses of chemotherapy to eliminate cancer cells, followed by the infusion of stem cells to help restore the bone marrow and blood cell production.

Stem cell transplants play a crucial role in the treatment of certain cancers by allowing the administration of intensified chemotherapy, which can be more effective in eliminating cancerous cells. However, it’s important to note that stem cell transplants are complex procedures and are typically recommended based on individual factors such as the type and stage of lymphoma, the response to initial treatment, and the patient’s overall health.
