Lymphoma is a broad term that describes cancer of the body’s lymphatic system, which is part of the body’s germ-fighting network. The two main types are:
- Hodgkin lymphoma
- Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL)
Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (also known as NHL, or sometimes just lymphoma) is a cancer that starts in cells called lymphocytes, which are part of the body’s immune system. Lymphocytes are in the lymph nodes and other lymphoid tissues (such as the spleen and bone marrow).
