Types of Lymphoma

Lymphomas are cancers of lymphocytes, a kind of white blood cell that circulates in the blood or are present in certain tissues such as spleen or lymphoma nodes. Lymphocytes are an important part of the immune system that protects against infections. There are many different types of lymphoma. Some require urgent treatment, others do not require treatment at all. Some are treated with chemotherapy, others with radiation, and sometimes both modalities. Some are curable. Others are not.
