What is lymphoma?
Lymphoma is the fifth most common cancer in the UK. There are effective treatments, and most people live well, with and beyond lymphoma. Lymphoma develops when white blood cells that help to fight infection (lympocytes) grow out of control. They divide in an abnormal way or do not die when they should. There are many different types of lymphoma which can behave differently and need different treatment.Find out more about lymphoma
