Dear patient,

I am sorry to hear about the disease relapse in such a short while.

The treatment suggested to you by your oncologist is absolutely correct. The best way to treat lymphoma which has recurred in a very short period is to treat with additional chemotherapy and follow it up with a bone marrow transplant. This will ensure a better response and overall outcome.

The cost of a Bone marrow transplant varies from one institute to the other.

The best places where you can get your father treated is at Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai and Gujarat Cancer Centre Ahemdabad. Bith of these places is cost-effective and reliable.

I hope your father improves fast.

Please write back if you have any specific doubts.
