Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is a type of lymph node cancer that has many subcategories. The types of lymphomas included under the category of non-Hodgkin lymphoma are many distinct cancers. These cancers affect the body in different ways and have very different genetic and molecular features.
The diagnosis of these varied lymphoma types can be quickly determined and a targeted treatment plan developed because the differences in the many types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma are obvious to a lymphoma expert.
Types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma include:
- Follicular lymphoma
- Marginal zone lymphoma
- Mantle cell lymphoma
- Diffuse large b-cell lymphoma
- Burkitt lymphoma
- Lymphoblastic lymphoma
A variety of lymphomas originate from an immunological ancestor called a B-cell, and therefore are called B-cell lymphoma.
A variety of lymphomas that came from an ancestor called a T-cell, are named T-cell lymphoma.
