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.^1^ [[br]] [[br]] ---- 1.
