Learn more about lymphoma

Lymphoma is the 5th most common cancer in the UK, but many people have never heard of it and don't know the symptoms - you can help us change this!

What is lymphoma?

Lymphoma is a haematological cancer or blood cancer - a cancer that develops from blood cells. All lymphomas develop from types of white blood cells called lymphocytes, which are part of the immune system. Watch our animation to learn more about lymphoma
