Hodgkin lymphoma and the many different subtypes of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) have different responses to treatment, so accurate diagnosis and a rational approach to management are essential. Fast Facts: Lymphoma distills the most important aspects of the diagnosis and management of these complex disorders into a highly accessible well-illustrated summary of the key facts. This fully updated second edition provides:

  • a clear outline of the nature of lymphoma
  • the essentials of clinical presentation, biopsy and  basic histology
  • the latest laboratory diagnostics, including immunophenotyping, cytogenetics and microarray technology
  • key aspects of staging and initial therapy
  • superbly illustrated overviews of the pathology, presentation, treatment and prognosis of each lymphoma subtype
  • new treatment options, including targeted biological therapies
  • a practical overview of supportive care for the complications of lymphoma

Written by three experts in the field from the UK and USA, Fast Facts: Lymphoma applies an international perspective to this challenging disease in a unique format within the context of clinical practice. It is a valuable resource for trainee doctors and specialist nurses working in the field of hemato-oncology. It will also be of interest to the inquiring patient or carer who wishes to know more about lymphoma.


  • Epidemiology
  • Cellular and molecular aspects
  • Presentation, biopsy and diagnostic laboratory techniques
  • Staging and general management principles
  • Aggressive B-cell lymphomas
  • Indolent B-cell lymphomas
  • T-cell and natural-killer cell lymphomas
  • Immunocompromised and HIV-positive patients
  • Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Treatment modalities
  • Supportive care


"Valuable and well-written."
Shannon Philp, Lecturer, Sydney Nursing School, The University of Sydney

“This is a very well structured, clear and concise text covering all aspects of lymphoma. Its ease of use and readability make it perfect for my students to use in their hematology studies. I would recommend this text to all healthcare professionals new to the field of hematology.”
Dr Samantha Toland, Lecturer, Birmingham City University

"A well-written and informative book covering all types of lymphoma. I would recommend this to anyone wishing to learn more about this complex disease. There is enough detail for health professionals who are new to the subject or who would like to expand their knowledge, while at the same time the majority of the book is written in a way that is also understandable for patients who wish to find out as much as possible about lymphoma. Full of interesting images, tables and diagrams to enhance the text, this is a comprehensive book covering all lymphoma types as well as epidemiology, current treatment modalities and supportive care."
Amazon review, November 2012

"OK, so this isn't the kind of book you're going to buy unless you or a member of your family or close friend has lymphoma. But if you do find yourself in that position, this is a great book that explains in 'layman' terms what each type of lymphoma is, how it gets treated, what the prognosis is likely to be (not in a scary way), what happens if it comes back, and so on and so on. Far better than reading the scare stories online that are often not based in scientific fact or practical experience. I've met the author a number of times, and he is genuinely a warm, caring, friendly and highly intelligent man. This all comes across very clearly in his book - in the way facts are presented, and in the style of writing."
5-star Amazon review, July 2015
