Non-Hodgkin lymphoma information

What is non-Hodgkin lymphoma?

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (also called non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or NHL) is cancer that develops in the lymphatic system from cells called lymphocytes, which are a type of white blood cell that helps the body fight infections.

NHL can develop in many parts of the body, including the lymph nodes, bone marrow, spleen, thymus and digestive tract.

Incidence

NHL is the fifth-most common type of cancer in the United States. It is more common in adults than children. It also tends to be more common in men than women.
