Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and am ready to help.
nodular lymphoid hyperplasia is when a whole bunch of lymphocytes get together and reproduce.
it is part of your immune system overdoing the number of lymphocytes in a area which could be the bowel lining or the lungs or elsewhere.
it can be seen sometimes in lymph nodes which contain non hodgkins lymphoma
it does not really affect the prognosis of the non hodgkins lymphoma.
what is more important with regards XX XXXXXXXXX for non hodgkins lymphoma would be the international prognostic index factors which are
age, LDH level, stage, performance status, extranodal sites.
