Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a type of cancer that attacks the immune system – lymph nodes, spleen – and may spread to other areas of the body. There are many different types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. People at higher risk include organ transplant recipients and those with immune system disorders. As with all cancers, early detection is key to a successful fight.
