My mother just died at age 65 of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (multiple lesions, large one in brain). What are my risks for NHL or other cancers? I'm 36.

In brief: Not much increased

The malignant lymphomas by and large don't run in families.
A few genes are known but they are of small effect. Stop worrying and live as richly and wisely as you can. I also see you report erectile dysfunction; I hope this is getting worked up and especially that prolactinoma and hemochromatosis have been ruled out. Best wishes.
