In brief: Type of lymphoma

There are two basic categories of lymphomas: hodgkin's lymphoma (also called hodgkin's disease) and non-hodgkin's lymphomas.
The difference between these is in the specific lymphocytes involved. Hodgkin's lymphoma is marked by the presence of an abnormal lymphocyte called the reed-sternberg cell (or b lymphocyte).
