Patients with nonHodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) are at increased risk for second cancers.
Few studies, however, include longterm survivors, and none report risk for second cancer among NHL patients surviving 15 or more years.
Our aim was to examine the pattern of second cancers among long-term survivors of NHL.
A cohort of 6171 patients diagnosed with NHL as a first primary cancer and who survived 2 or more years was identified within population-based tumor registries in Sweden, Ontario, and Iowa and within the affiliated tumor registry of The Netherlands Cancer Institute.
Nearly 1000 NHL patients lived 15 or more years after diagnosis.
Tumor registry files were searched for new invasive primary malignancies.
