Also known as: Lymphomas
Lymphomas are a type of cancer involving lymphocytes, which are cells within the immune system that help the body fight off infections. When lymph cells become cancerous, they multiply and collect within the body, eventually creating a tumor mass. Tumors can spread throughout the body through the lymph system as well as to other types of tissue within the body.
Treatment: Treatment options may include chemotherapy, radiation therapy or biological therapy. Blood or bone marrow transplant is reserved for patients at high risk or those with recurrent disease.
