The exact cause of neoplasms of haematopoietic or lymphoid tissues is not known. However, certain genetic mutations, environmental and lifestyle factors, and certain infections may play a role in the development of these tumours.
Neoplasms of haematopoietic or lymphoid tissues are typically diagnosed via a physical exam, imaging tests such as a CT scan or MRI, and a biopsy.
The differential diagnosis for neoplasms of haematopoietic or lymphoid tissues includes other types of cancer, such as lymphoma, leukemia, and myeloma.
Treatment for neoplasms of haematopoietic or lymphoid tissues may involve chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or targeted therapy. Surgery may also be required to remove the tumour.
The prognosis for neoplasms of haematopoietic or lymphoid tissues varies depending on the size, type, and location of the tumour, as well as the overall health of the patient. Generally, patients with smaller, localized tumours have a better prognosis than those with larger, more advanced tumours.
