    If your initial diagnosis is low grade (nodal marginal zone) NHL and it becomes high grade, what is the most common diagnosis?

    I just found out that I now have high grade NHL. I'm waiting for my next appt with my Oncologist in 10 days, but I'm wondering if there is a certain type of high grade that is more likely if you were initially diagnosed with low grade marginal zone B cell NHL?????

      A change in grade doesn't change your diagnosis. The grade refers to how slow or fast the cancer is growing, but your diagnosis is still NHL.
