In brief: Mostly unknown
A few lymphomas are caused by epstein barr virus infection, but in most cases, the cause is not known.
Other cancers do not cause lymphomas.

In brief: Often unknown
Lymphoma, cancer of lymph system most of the time cause is unknown, some cases definite link to virus infection as in epstein bar virus (ebv) in burket's &hodgkins lymphoma, t cell leukemia virus, HIV infection, genetic dna mutations causing tumor suppression mechanisms.
Environmental factors, chemicals, agent orange, herbicides, pesticides are all attributed as cause.
