There is no cure for CTCL but many patients are able to keep the disease under control and remain free of symptoms for years. Most patients receiving treatment for early-stage mycosis fungoides have a normal life expectancy.

The following factors determine how well a patient is able to manage the disease:

  • The stage of the cancer
  • The type and number of skin abnormalities present
  • The patient’s age, sex and general health
