Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system, the body's disease-fighting network.
The lymphatic system includes the lymph nodes (lymph glands), spleen, thymus gland and bone marrow. Lymphoma can affect all those areas as well as other organs throughout the body.
What lymphoma treatment is best for you depends on your lymphoma type, the severity of your lymphoma and your preferences. Lymphoma treatment may involve chemotherapy, biological therapy medications, radiation therapy or a stem cell transplant.
