My boyfriend was diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma at the age of 22 after experiencing night sweats, weight loss, pain in his jaw and a bad back. He underwent 4 months of chemo and intrathecal chemo and has been in remission. As Burkitt is so rare, there is a lack of research determining whether the treatment is curative or palliative and I want to know what the chances are that it will return. I am also concerned as to whether it is hereditary. His brother was born with CHARGE syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that affects learning, growth and the ability to hear.
