Why Is This Important?

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is cancer that starts in the lymphoid tissue. Non-Hodgkin lymphomas can occur at any age and are often marked by enlarged lymph nodes, fever, and weight loss. There are many different types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which can be divided into aggressive (fast-growing) and indolent (slow-growing) types and can be classified as either B-cell or T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Some risk factors for developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma are older age, exposure to certain chemicals such as benzene, certain pesticides and herbicides, radiation exposure, weakened immune system, autoimmune disease, certain infections such as HIV, and obesity ([http://www.cancer.org]).

What Is Being Done?

The Utah Leukemia and Lymphoma Society offers many services to those affected by these cancers such as educational information, support groups, advocacy and volunteer opportunities, treatment options, and research information. For more information visit [http://www.leukemia-lymphoma.org].
