In brief: Lymph system cancer
Nhl is a large group of related cancers which originate in the lymph tissues of the body.
These cells normally help fight infection but become cancerous and grow out of control. They may stay in the lymph nodes or also be found in any part of the body or organs. Some grow slowly (indolent) while others are more aggressive. You doctor will run a series of test to stage and type the lymphoma.
