What is Lymphoma?

Lymphoma is a type of blood cancer that affects the immune system. It specifically affects white blood cells called lymphocytes, which are an important part of your immune system. Lymphoma is also called cancer of the lymphatic system, or lymphatic cancer. Lymphoma happens when one of your white blood cells changes into rapidly growing cancer cells that don’t die. Early diagnosis and more effective treatments mean more people are living with lymphoma five years after diagnosis. Nearly 90% of people with lymphoma are alive five years after diagnosis. More than 70% of adults with lymphoma are alive five years after diagnosis.
