Lymphoma

Haematological disease characterised by the growth of ganglia with or without an increase in the number of white blood cells in the blood. It may also be accompanied by weight loss, burning pain, excessive sweating or increased frequency of infections.

Lymphomas are a very diverse group of diseases within the field of oncology. The cancer cell of a lymphoma is the lymphocyte, the main cell in the patient’s immune system, the functions of which are defence against infections and tumour surveillance.

Lymphocytes, alongside other cells, form the population of white blood cells or leukocytes in the blood.  According to their function in the immune system, lymphocytes may be B, T or NK type. For this reason, the lymphomas that derive from them are also B, T and NK type.
