Cancer that happens in lymph nodes or other lymph tissues
One of the three primary types of cancer.
Any of various malignant (usually) tumors found in the lymph nodes.
Cancer of the lymphoid tissues. Lymphomas are often described as being large cell or small cell types, cleaved or non-cleaved, or diffuse or nodular. The different types often have different prognoses (i.e., prospect of survival or recovery). Lymphomas can also be referred to by the organs where they are active, such as CNS lymphomas, which are in the central nervous system, and GI lymphomas, which are in the gastrointestinal tract. The types of lymphomas most commonly associated with HIV infection are called non-Hodgkin's lymphomas or B cell lymphomas. In these types of cancers, certain cells of the lymphatic system grow abnormally. They divide rapidly, growing into tumors.
Cancer of the lymphatic system, which includes the bone marrow, spleen, thymus, lymph nodes and vessels that carry fluid and infection-fighting cells.
a cancer of the lymphatic system in which functionless or defective cells are produced at an alarming rate; lymphomas are classified as either Hodgkin's or non-Hodgkin's and affect both adults and children
a group of malignant neoplasms characterized by the proliferation of cells native to the lymphoid tissues, i.e., lymphocytes, histiocytes, and their precursors and derivatives. The group is divided into two major clinicopathologic categories: Hodgkin's disease and nonHodgkin's lymphoma.

Some examples of lymphomas are BURKITT'S LYMPHOMA, HODGKIN'S DISEASE and NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA. Treatment involves radiation therapy (radiotherapy), CHEMOTHERAPY or both.

The two main types of lymphoma are Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The treatment methods for these two types of lymphomas are very different.

A group of cancers that originate in the lymphatic system.
Any tumor, usually malignant, consisting of proliferating cells from lymphoid tissues (see lymph), which develops especially in the spleen or lymph nodes ( lymphome, n.m)
Cancer that begins in cells of the immune system. There are two basic categories of lymphomas. One kind is Hodgkin's lymphoma, which is marked by the presence of a type of cell called the Reed-Sternberg cell. The other category is non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, which includes a large, diverse group of cancers of immune system cells. Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas can be further divided into cancers that have an indolent (slow-growing) course and those that have an aggressive (fast-growing) course. These subtypes behave and respond to treatment differently. Both Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas can occur in children and adults, and prognosis and treatment depend on the stage and the type of cancer.

Lymphoma is a variety of cancer that originates in lymphocytes or, more rarely, of histiocytes. Collectively, these cell types form the reticuloendothelial system and circulate in the vessels of the lymphatic system. Just as there are many types of lymphocytes, so there are many types of lymphoma.
