What is the progression of cutaneous lymphoma?

 

The course of cutaneous lymphoma is unpredictable.

Some patients will progress slowly, rapidly or not at all. Most patients will only experience skin symptoms without serious complications. About 10% of patients will experience progressive disease with lymph node and/or internal involvement with serious complications.

Many patients live normal lives while they treat their chronic skin disease and some are able to remain in remission for long periods of time.
