It is confusing... Lymphoproliferative disorder (ld) is comprised of white blood cells that grow in a unregulated way (like leukemia or lymphoma), but instead of coming from one cell originally with cancerous mutations (called clonal), the cells that grow come from many individual cells (termed polyclonal). It is more a disorder of regulation, and can be seen in someone after organ transplant on immunosupression.

Ask them, especially your oncologist. Read more...
