What is Lymphoma? What are the causes of Lymphoma? What are the types of lymphoma?


The lymph system is a network of tissue, fluid, and vessels that runs through all the part of our body. The lymph system serves as immune function as it helps to protect the body from infection and disease by the collation and the demolition of invading organisms like viruses, bacteria, and abnormal cells.

Lymphoma is the cancer of the lymph system and it starts when a lymphocyte morphs into an abnormal cell and then starts to divide out of control. The abnormal cells then form tumours in lymph nodes and anywhere in the body. The disease spreads to almost any organ or tissue in the body.

The two main types of lymphoma are Hodgkin lymphoma and the non-Hodgkin lymphoma
