Types of Cancer

Lymphoma is a type of cancer affecting the lymphatic system, which is part of the immune system. Lymphoma occurs when lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell, grow and multiply uncontrollably.

These abnormal cells can form tumors, spreading to other parts of the body. There are two types: Hodgkin’s lymphoma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is the more common form, but includes many subtypes.

Common Symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Itching
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Night sweats
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
