Conditions InDepth: Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma
Lymphomas are cancers of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system fights infections and drains excess fluid from body tissues. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma is a general name given to many types of cancer that develop from white blood cells, called lymphocytes, in your lymphatic system. Non-Hodgkins lymphoma is different from Hodgkins lymphoma , a related type of cancer. In general, non-Hodgkins lymphomas are divided into categories: highly aggressive, aggressive, and low grade. They may also be described by the type of cells found within the lymphoma or the pattern of growth within the tissue.
