Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL)

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is a type of cancer that happens when cells in your lymph system grow abnormally and out of control. The cells can form a mass, called a lymphoma. They can also spread to other parts of your body.

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