What is Lymphoma?

Lymphoma is when lymphocytes, part of the body’s white blood cells, grow abnormally and form tumors. Lymphoma is one of the most common kinds of cancer. The two main types of lymphoma are Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The primary difference between Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is in the specific lymphocyte each involves. The types of lymphoma have very different disease progressions and treatments, so an accurate diagnosis is an important part of us giving you the care you need.

Lymphoma Treatments

Our team of lymphoma specialists will create a specialized treatment strategy based on the kind of lymphoma you have and whether it’s affecting one area or several places in your body. Our experts will consider not only the type of lymphoma, but also take into account the stage of the disease, the size of the tumor or tumors, what symptoms you’re experiencing, and whether it is aggressive or slow-growing.

There are more treatment options than ever before for people with lymphoma, including chemotherapy alone or a combination of radiation and chemotherapy. Our multidisciplinary teams are comprised of experienced doctors who specialize in treating lymphoma and offer comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment programs, including:

  • Total Skin Electron Beam Therapy (TSEBT) for Treatment of Cutaneous T-cell Lympohma (CTCL)

  • Today, most people with Hodgkin lymphoma can be cured and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is the sixth most common cancer in the U.S., with a five-year survival rate of more than 70 percent, according to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Early diagnosis and appropriate medical treatment help to improve survival rates.
