Lymphomas are cancers that form in white blood cells, which circulate in the blood and are found in lymph nodes and other organs throughout the body. Lymphoma is called a cancer of the immune system because white blood cells, or lymphocytes, help the body defend against infection. It is the most common blood cancer and the third most common pediatric cancer.

Yale Medicine has a multidisciplinary team of experts -- including radiation oncologist, pathologists, and oncologists -- who work together to determine the best treatment plan for each patient.
