What Causes A Diffused Large B Cell Lymphoma?

Shortly after I had massage therapy, where the therapist Squeezed my neck muscles really hard. Perhaps squeezing a lymph-node I was diagnosed with diffuse large B cell lymphoma shortly after Is it possible he ruptured a lymphnode and sent cancerous particles to the rest of my body?

Hi,

In my opinion I don't think the massage therapist ruptured the node them they infected the body but he just touched an inflamed node that caused pain that caused you to go for the check up to find that you had a diagnosis of it is also called Non Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL).

It occurs when the body makes too many abnormal lymphocytes. These abnormal cells don’t die. They continue to grow and divide. This enlarges the lymph nodes. Its main cause is unknown till now researchers are looking for a main cause but it may have some factors that may increase NHL risk include: old age, since most people are aged 60 or older when diagnosed, the use of immunosuppressant drugs, an infection, particularly with HIV, Epstein-Barr virus, or Helicobacter pylori rarely. Exposure to certain chemicals, such as weed and insect killers.

Hope the above information helps you. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
