Question
Dear OncoLink "Ask the Experts,"
I am looking for links or location of information on N-HL, Type B, Stage 2, of the tonsils. My sister in law has been so diagnosed and would like to follow up on info, particularly outcomes data and statistics. She is already undergoing treatment, but info on treatments will also be of help.  
Thank you.
