Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL)

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is a type of cancer that happens in your lymph system. White blood cells called lymphocytes grow abnormally and out of control. The cells can form a mass, called a tumor. They can also spread to other parts of your body.

Treatment can cure some people and may allow others to live for years.
