Description

Lymphoma is a cancer caused by immune system cells known as lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are found in the blood but carry out their most important immune functions after leaving the bloodstream and entering specialized lymphoid tissues scattered throughout the body. Lymphoma can arise in any region of the body in which lymphocytes are found, but many lymphomas develop in the lymph nodes. Of the 60 types of lymphomas, most fall under the category of non-Hodgkin lymphoma; the remaining types are known as Hodgkin lymphoma. Lymphoma discusses the science of lymphoma, theories about its causes, the history of the disease, and current treatments and how they work.
