    Question re. diagnosis

    Oh No

    Although the doctor at U. Penn originally diagnosed my dad with Enteropathy-Associated T-Cell Lymphoma in April 2013, the doctors at MSKCC instead diagnosed his disease as Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma Not Otherwise Specified (about six months later). Either way, the course of treatment is basically the same. In addition, he has continued to follow a strict gluten-free diet since he was first diagnosed.
