Lymphoma is a cancer type where uncontrollable growth of lymphocytes (WBCs) initiating from lymph glands or lymphatic tissue or other parts of the lymphatic system, including bone marrow, tonsils, testicles, spleen and lymph nodes.
This excess growth of lymphocytes often accumulates in lymph nodes. Though this accumulation can occur in any body part, commonly affected parts are armpits, neck and groin and rarely in lungs or bones.
The non-inheritable and non-contageous disease is one of the common types of cancer but can be treated with patients’ life expectancy remaining quite large post-treatment.
Genomic alterations in lymphocytes cause damage to the lifecycle of these cells, boosting the cell division rate or affecting the death period. However, causes for such gene changes are yet to be determined.
Phases of Lymphoma cancer- -Single group of lymph nodes (above or below diaphragm) -Multiple group of lymph nodes are affected(above or below diaphragm) -Expands to both sides of diaphragm -Expands to bone marrow or other body parts
Types of Lymphoma Cancer- Though two types of Lymphoma are defined, it is often difficult to determine the exact sub-type of Lymphoma.
* Hodgkin Lymphoma In Hodgkin Lymphoma, the cancer cells called Reed-Sternberg (RS) cells, have a characteristic appearance under microscope.
Further subtypes- Nodular Sclerosis: Lymph nodes contain Reed-Sternberg cells mixed with normal white blood cells
Mixed Cellularity: Lymph nodes contain several Reed-Sternberg cells in addition to several other cell types
Lymphocyte-rich: Lymph nodes contain several normal- appearing lymphocytes and classic Reed-Sternberg cells
Lymphocyte-depleted: Lymph nodes contain large volume of Reed-Sternberg cells and few normal lymphocytes
Nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin lymphoma: Lymph nodes contain several abnormal B cells and Reed-Sternberg cells are rarely observed
* Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Unlike Hodgkin Lymphoma, the cancer cells called Reed-Sternberg cells are absent in this subtype of Lymphoma
High grade NHL
* B-cell NHL Lymphoma Diffuse large B-cell (DLBCL): Abnormal growth of large B-Cells in different body parts
Intravascular B-Cell: Occurs due to explosion of lymphocytes within tiny vessels with no involvement of the organ parenchyma
Primary mediastinal large B-cell: Large neoplastic cells with B-cell derivation are observed
Burkitt: Most aggressive form, classified as endemic (African) type, sporadic type and HIV related
Primary central nervous system: DLBCL sub-type affecting the brain and or spinal cord
* T-cell NHL Lymphoma Peripheral T-cell (PTCL NOS): Abnormal growth of T-cells which are not specified under any category
Anaplastic large cell: It can occur in the skin or in other organs throughout the body
Angioimmunoblastic T-cell: the body’s immune system does not recognize, and consequently destroys, its own cells and tissues
Enteropathy-associated: occurs in the intestines and is mostly associated with celiac disease
Nasal-type NK/T-cell: Natural killer cells often affecting the nasal area, trachea, gastrointestinal tract, or skin
Hepatosplenic T-cell: Abnormal growth of T-cells in liver or spleen
Lymphoblastic: The T-cells outgrow in number when a bone marrow cell develops alterations in its gene code
Low Grade NHL Follicular: B-cells are affected; Enlargement of the lymph nodes in the neck, underarm, stomach, groin
Small lymphocytic: B-lymphocytes, with enlarged nodes affecting neck, armpit or groin
Lympho-plasmacytic: Enlarged cells make varying volumes of immunoglobin M protein in the blood, making it thick (condition referred to as Waldenstrom macroglobulinemi)
MALT Lymphoma (Gastric and Non-gastric): mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) starts outside lymph nodes, usually in lymphatic tissue in the mucous membranes or tissues lining organs
Splenic marginal zone: The NHL sub-type affects spleen, bone marrow and blood
Nodal marginal zone: Mostly occurs in lymph nodes and rarely in spleen or bone marrow Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma clinical trials report from VPA Research provides comprehensive analysis and trends in global Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma disease clinical trials.
