Hi I was diagnosed with extra nodal marginal zone Lymphoma 14 months ago.
I've had no treatment and have opted for watch and wait following my haematologist and oncologist advice.
My immune system seems to be in control for the moment but who knows for how long.
My last appointment with Haematologist was this week and my next appointment is in 6 months.
I do realise I'm very lucky and I feel well with no physical problems apart from a small tumour in right orbit which doesn't bother me.
But I do have cancer which in its self is every now and again abit scary.
