Lymphomas

Lymphomas Cancer Patient Discussing with Nurse

Lymphomas are tumours that develop in the lymphatics, which is part of the immune system. They are classified as either Hodgkin’s lymphomas or Non-Hodgkins lymphomas.

Most lymphomas are Non-Hodgkin’s, accounting for approximately 80%. Hodgkin’s lymphomas contain B lymphocytes, also known as Reed Sternberg cells which are a type of white blood cell that has become malignant. 

The B lymphocytes multiply abnormally and collect in areas such as the lymph nodes. (Although lymphomas are rare in adults, they are the 3rd most common childhood cancer, accounting for 11% of all childhood cancers. The male to female ratio in children is 2:1 and the highest incidence is between the ages of 10 and 14 years. The lymphomas are 50% Hodgkin’s and 50% Non-Hodgkins, their treatment will vary from adults but it is still predominately chemotherapy).

There are two types of Lymphonas:

  • Non-Hodgkin's
  • Hodgkin's
