At Stanford Medicine, our lymphoma team specializes in treating all types of Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Lymphoma is a blood cancer that forms in the lymphatic system.
Lymphoma can affect all areas of the lymphatic system, such as bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen, and thymus.
Hodgkin lymphoma is highly curable even in advanced stages.
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma consist of several subtypes (B- and T- cell). These can be indolent (slow growing) or aggressive with several treatment options. Some examples of indolent lymphomas include follicular lymphoma, Marginal-zone lymphoma, Lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma/Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia
Some examples of aggressive lymphoma include diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, peripheral T-cell lymphoma, and Burkitt’s lymphoma.
