Answer

Radiation oncologists are often consulted because radiation plays a role in management of B-cell lymphoma; it is considered the treatment of choice in early-stage indolent lymphoma and has a role in consolidation of treatment in localized aggressive lymphoma.

A surgical consultation is indicated when central venous access devices are employed, especially when stem cell or bone marrow transplantation is considered.
