Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is the name given to the category of cancers that start in immune cells called "lymphocytes." Lymphocytes are located in the lymph nodes and other lymphatic tissue (including the spleen and the bone marrow).
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is among the most common types of cancers, with nearly 70,000 new cases (children and adults) diagnosed each year.
As with most cancers, early detection helps improve survival odds. Early symptoms that could indicate non-Hodgkin lymphoma include:
- Enlarged lymph nodes
- Swollen abdomen (belly)
- Feeling full after only a small amount of food
- Chest pain or pressure
- Shortness of breath or cough
- Weight loss
- Night sweats
- Fatigue (extreme tiredness)
