Health Indicator Report of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Lymphoma is a type of cancer that begins in the cells of the lymph system. There are two main types of lymphoma, Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. There are many different types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which can be divided into aggressive (fast-growing) and indolent (slow-growing) types. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma can occur in different types of white blood cells (B-cells, T-cells, and NK cells), but the most common types form in B-cells [1]. Non-Hodgkin lymphomas can occur at any age and are often marked by enlarged lymph nodes, fever, night sweats, fatigue, and weight loss [2]. Some risk factors for developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma are older age, being male, and a weakened immune system. Prognosis depends on many factors, including the subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, cancer stage, and the person's overall health.[[br]] [[br]] ---- 1 [https://seer.cancer.gov/statfacts/html/nhl.html][[br]] 2 [https://www.cancer.gov/types/lymphoma/patient/adult-nhl-treatment-pdq]
