What is Lymphoma?

A lymphoma is a group of blood cancers that develop from lymphocytes. The lymph system is made up mainly of immune system cells that help the body fight infections. As it is present in the bloodstream, it can spread throughout the body and most often spreads to the liver, bone marrow, or lungs.

There is no known cause in most cases of lymphoma. Some identified risk factors include infections that weaken the immune system such as HIV infection, an inherited disorder, or medications used in transplant patients.
