One of the most common cancers, lymphoma starts in the white blood cells, which themselves are responsible for fighting disease. It can spread to organs of the lymphatic system like bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen, tonsils, thymus or the lymphoid tissue of the digestive system. There are two main types of lymphomas: Hodgkin lymphoma, also called Hodgkin’s disease and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Since lymph nodes are pervasive in the body, including the bone marrow, there can be many symptoms of lymphoma.
Since many illness symptoms are similar to lymphoma, you should consult a doctor right away to get a proper diagnosis and targeted treatment.
Biopsy: A biopsy is the most accurate diagnostic tool for lymphoma. Pathologists conduct a battery of tests to determine the type of cells affected by the lymphoma.
Genetic Analysis: It can be part of the diagnostic procedure since it helps in determining your prognosis and selecting the best form of treatment.
