Lymphomas may develop in the lymph nodes, spleen, bone marrow, and blood and affect the lymphocytes, a type of white blood cells. The lymphocytes multiplying and growing at a fast rate eventually form a tumor.
Lymphomas can be lethal as they can affect the entire body if the cancerous lymphocytes migrate from the affected area to other parts of the body in the lymphatic system and blood. Effective diagnosis and treatment becomes all the more important as the symptoms might even show in the areas away from the affected one. The disease is of two types: Hodgkin’s disease and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, the latter being more common.
Cancer of the lymph nodes, such as Hodgkin’s disease or Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, can often involve multiple lymph node regions and occasionally other (extra nodal) sites. Optimal treatment often involves chemotherapy, and radiation therapy is frequently used to treat involved or bulky sites, often using large fields of treatment to cover multiple lymph node bearing regions. Although the effective doses are low and can usually be given in 3-4 weeks, sometimes large volumes of lung or small intestine can be at risk for damage. Tomotherapy can do a good job of limiting dosage to these normal structures, and by using CT image guidance, the uncertainty of reproducing treatment positioning for large fields of treatment can be reduced.
Fortunately, cancer is rare in children; however, solid tumors (not leukemia) can often grow rapidly and to a large size before they are detected. If possible, surgical removal is recommended unless the danger or disability to the child prohibits this. Many childhood cancers also respond to chemotherapy, but a number of tumors will also require radiation therapy. Radiation delivery is especially challenging in children because the bones and hormone producing glands are still growing and are sensitive to the effects of radiation. Since Tomotherapy can precisely target such tumors, while relatively sparing adjacent structures, it is possible to limit the dosage to growing bones and glands while treating inoperable cancers to effective doses. It is even possible to treat the entire brain and spinal cord to effective doses, while protecting the bones of the spine and head enough to permit relatively normal growth. Some institutions are even treating the entire bone marrow instead of the entire body in preparation for bone marrow transplantation.
With conventional radiation, even with IMRT, children must sometimes be positioned lying on their stomach or even standing (for total body treatment). Since the Tomotherapy beam rotates around the child like a CT scanner, all children can be treated comfortably lying on their back.
