My friend is a male 47 year old diagnosed with Mensenteric adenopathy. He has been referred to a surgical oncologist. Can you explain the severity of this cancer and what type of treatment is common after surgery.
What are the chances of a full and complete recovery? They said it involves the lymphnodes, liver, vessels
(He is in remission for Non Hodgkins Lymphoma for 3 years
and was on dialysis during the end of his original treatment. He recently had an accidental poisoning episode that required 5 weeks of dialysis, 3 times a week then his kidneys recovered. and then he had rectal bleeding, that is how they found the mensenteric adenopathy.
Thank you, sunsetter
Mesenteric Adenopathy is a finding seen in many different cancer situations. Lymphoma can cause this, as well as other forms of cancer. Sometimes, infection/inflammation can lead to this finding as well. It is difficult to assess his prognosis without knowing exactly what is causing his adenopathy. Once a primary diagnosis is made, then the type of treatment and outcome can be better assessed. You should ask your oncologist if this is cancer, and what the primary source is.
