What is lymphoma?

Lymphoma is a type of cancer that develops in the lymph system, part of the body's immune system. Because lymph tissue is found throughout the body, the lymphomas — Non-Hodgkin's and Hodgkin's  — can start in almost any part of the body and spread to other tissues or organs. Pediatric lymphoma is the third most common childhood cancer.
