Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, or NHL, develops when cancerous cells crowd out healthy ones in the tissues and organs that make up the immune system, your bodys line of defense. To fight infection, your lymph system extends throughout most of your body, which is why lymphoma can spread easily. If you notice swollen lymph nodes, unexplained weight loss and extreme fatigue, visit your doctor. Children should also be monitored for breathing problems, a symptom of Childhood non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Although no one knows the cause of this cancer, if youre a male or Caucasian, have HIV/AIDS or intake a diet high in fats, you have a higher chance of developing adult non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Early detection and treatment can lead to success against this cancer.
