About lymphoma

Lymphoma is a cancer that starts in cells found in the lymphatic system, which is part of the immune system. The lymphatic system is made up of a fluid called lymph that contains T and B lymphocytes (types of white blood cells made by the spleen), lymph vessels that remove lymph from the blood, and lymph nodes that filter lymph and store white blood cells to help the body fight illness. Lymph tissue is found throughout your body, including in your digestive tract, tonsils and bone marrow.


There are numerous types of lymphoma, ranging from more common to very rare. In many cases, lymphoma can be successfully treated. 

Lymphoma symptoms, diagnosis and stages

If you have symptoms of lymphoma, your doctor will order diagnostic tests. Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center specialists use a variety of tests to diagnose and stage lymphoma in order to develop a personalized treatment plan.
