The Lymphoma Guide: Information for Patients and Caregivers
The Lymphoma Guide has sections with information for all types of lymphoma, including Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Lymphoma is the name for a group of blood cancers that develop in the lymphatic system. Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma are the two main types.
About 90 percent of people with lymphoma have non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). The rest have Hodgkin lymphoma. Some types of lymphoma are curable. For other types, many patients are able to keep their disease under control and have a good quality of life with medical treatment. Progress in treating lymphoma gives patients more hope than ever before.
