Answer

The initial evaluation of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients is aimed at determining the stage of the disease, assessing for end-organ damage by the disease and/or preexisting comorbid conditions, and identifying situations that may affect treatment design. The evaluation of patients with lymphoproliferative disorders should include a detailed history and physical examination.
