Lymphatic & Blood Cancer Facts

Lymphoma is a cancer that begins in the lymphatic system, which is part of the immune system. The lymphatic system is composed of lymph nodes in your neck, armpits, groin, chest, and abdomen. It is responsible for removing excess fluids from your body as well as producing immune cells.


Abnormal lymphocytes, a type of white blood cells that fight infection, become lymphoma cells, which multiply and collect in your lymph nodes.
