Burkitt's Lymphoma

Burkitt's Lymphoma | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the disease diagnosed?

Doctors diagnose the disease by analyzing a sample of cells from the swollen tissue in the jaw or abdomen. A piece of the swollen tissue, called a biopsy sample, is removed. Special stains and other tests are applied to the tissue. If these tests show Burkitt lymphoma, then the person will undergo other testing that helps the doctor figure out the extent of the cancer. This includes CT scans and a bone marrow biopsy.
