The life changing diagnosis
Miller made recovery in 24 hours, and was then preliminary diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer that develops in the lymphatic system. “It was not an infection, it was a type of a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma – it’s a type of a cancer. We’re getting an oncologist involved and we have to figure out what the next steps are as far as chemotherapy or radiation or more spine surgery” said Dr. Melamed. “Depending on the tumor type, depending on the sensitivity of the tumor – it just depends the type but I feel more than yes, she will undergo chemotherapy or radiation” he added.
