Non-Hodgkin lymphoma: a disease in which malignant
(cancer) cells form in the lymph system
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the lymph system, part of the body's immune system. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma can be indolent or aggressive. Age, gender, and a weakened immune system can affect the risk of non-Hodgkin
lymphoma. Signs and symptoms of non-Hodgkin lymphoma include swelling in the lymph nodes, fever, night sweats, weight loss, and fatigue.
