Eligibility Criteria

Age 18+ · All Participants · 10 Total Inclusion Criteria

Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
(IR) on MRI, Cohort II: For nodal/extranodal mass, no lesions amenable for injections as determined by IR on MRI For nodal/extranodal masses, Cohort I includes those with lesions that are amenable for injections as determined by IR on MRI, whereas Cohort II includes those without lesions amenable for injections as determined by IR on MRI.
A person has non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) or Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) if they have a nodal or extranodal mass
The Text: The exam must include a review of the patient's history and a physical examination, including a breast examination and assessment of the lymph nodes
The patient is not a candidate for any curative therapy or any known life-prolonging therapy.
For nodal or extranodal disease (lymphoma or breast): Must have at least 2 lesions that are >= 20 mm (2.0 cm) in the longest diameter by physical exam and/or on cross-sectional imaging
Dermatologic lesions (either lymphoma or breast) that are greater than 1 cm and visible, without infection, and can be injected with medication will be candidates for further therapy
Patients who haven't responded to other treatments or can't tolerate them may be good candidates for this therapy.
The patient must have an ANC of 1000/mm^3 or greater that was obtained less than 14 days before they register for the study.
