There are some important things to bear in mind when travelling with non Hodgkin lymphoma and it is always essential that you consult your GP or specialist prior to booking any holiday, it is also advisable to check that you can obtain pre existing medical conditions travel insurance for the country you wish to travel to prior to confirming your holiday booking.
Vaccinations may be advisable before travel from the UK to a number of countries worldwide. The exact vaccines recommended will depend upon your destination. Your GP or travel clinic should also be well aware of which vaccines are safe for patients with non Hodgkin lymphoma. However, it is a good idea for you to be well informed about this issue as well and to bring it to the attention of the doctor or nurse when discussing recommendations for safe travel. Many vaccines are both safe and advisable for patients with lymphoma. However, some vaccines are not recommended for patients with non Hodgkin lymphoma – this is often because the vaccine contains live organisms. You should of course be especially cautious about travelling to an area where there is a risk of a disease that you are unable to receive the vaccination for.
It is always worth researching the medical facilities available in the area you are intending to stay, to make sure in the event you fall ill, there are adequate state facilities for your needs, and this can mean that you may have to avoid remote, island resorts.
