Dendritic cell tumor

What is the prognosis of dendritic cell tumors?

The prognosis of a dendritic cell tumor depends on the subtype and location of the tumor. Because this is a rare condition, little is known about the natural course or most effective treatment. As such, it is difficult to estimate how quickly or aggressively the condition might progress in each affected individual. In general, prognosis is less favorable when the tumor has spread to multiple parts of the body (metastasized). Dendritic cell tumors are a type of cancer and can be fatal.
