What is Lymphoma?
This form of cancer occurs when lymphocytes, white blood cells that protect the body from disease, begin to uncontrollably grow and multiply. There are two types of lymphoma: Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL) and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). While outwardly similar, HL and NHL differ greatly at the microscopic level. Symptoms can vary, but may include: swollen, painless lymph nodes in the neck, armpits, or groin, fever, chills, unexplained weight loss, itchy skin, and night sweats.
