Hodgkin's & non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma: Is it familial?

Posted by ronda12059 @ronda12059, Jan 24 11:16am

My Dad has Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and my sister has Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Is this something that I should be concerned about for myself for the future?

NHL is not a cancer that is inherited. That was one of my biggest worries for my kids and grandkids.

Thank you.

NHL IS NOT SOMETHING INHERITED. I am the only one struck from it. It was because using Round Up to clean my backyard. You need to boost your immune system and have an keto diet to avoid its resurgence. I have been in remission for 15 years but need a check up every 6 months. I wish you the best. Ginette

@chuck3105, when were you diagnosed? What treatment are you getting or have you had?
@ronda12059, how are your dad and sister managing?

Are there other cancers associated with the roundup exposure issue? My wife was just diagnosed with multiple myeloma, as is our our next door neighbor of 28 years We live in a dense planned neighborhood and EVERYONE uses roundup to excess. More than a coincidence I feel since MM is a 50/1,000,000 chance.

For now they are only talking about NHL. You should present your case to a lawyer searching for NHL to be in the trial against Monsanto and Bayer. I don't know why Round Up is still sold in stores when it is killing the blood of people. It is a crime. The FDA and WHO should prohibit the sell of these products. They were prohibited in France with the GMO.

My dad is doing well. My sister is about half way thru, 3 of 6 months, of chemo. Extremely tough on her but she is showing some improvement on her most recent PET scan. Hers is Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. His is Non Hodgkin’s Thank you for asking!

My husband has MDS red-cell blood cancer after handling Roundup for many years back in the day when it was sold as a "perfectly safe chemical; you can wash your hands in it if you're out in the field; you could even drink it and be safe". I have contacted several law firms that handle NHL Roundup claims. They all say they handle only NHL cases; and that there's not enough evidence – yet – to link Roundup to MDS. Stay tuned, I believe research will continue to reveal MM, MDS, and other cancers connected to Roundup.

Congratulations on 15 years free. Happy for you. I was just told I was in complete remission from NHL (MZ). This gives me hope. If you have any advice I’ll be glad to hear them
Thank you

hi, Judy,
Keto is really good, not damaging the liver?

Congratulations! Try to boost your immune system with vitamins. I like vit AECD, ginseng. I exercise 2 or 3 times a week, I like swimming. I like light and sun. Try to relax my body before going to sleep. I don't take medications. I prefer to have a good diet. Avoid red meat, but fish, turkey or chicken. Avoid sugar or pastry. I like chocolate when I am stressed. Like fruits and vegetables. I avoid to mix carbs with proteins. I can have pasta + salad. or meat or chicken+ broccoli or green beans. You will feel more energetic. Have a good breakfast, not a heavy lunch and a light dinner at 6 o'clock. Enjoy your life and avoid stress when you can. Good luck. Happy for you.
