Abstract

The objectives were to analyse data obtained in a district general hospital medical oncology unit over a 15–year period, and to provide a comparator for standards of care for lymphoma patients in new cancer units. Prospectively collected data were analysed on 208 consecutive patients presenting with lymphoma, on an ‘allcomers’ basis, between 1981 and 1996. Treatment was with radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy, according to local protocols. The outcome measure was survival from the date of diagnosis. The 5–year actuarial survival was 72.7% for Hodgkin's disease and 55.7% for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Age and stage of disease were the only predictors of survival in a multivariate analysis. Histological classification was not a useful predictor of survival in this analysis. Survival figures comparable with those obtained nationally and across Europe are attainable in a cancer unit. Multiple pathways of referral of lymphoma patients operate in our region.
