Symptoms & Diagnosis

Since there are no screening tests for lymphomas and symptoms can be hard to identify, a specific test must be performed to diagnose non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Symptoms & Diagnosis: Understanding the Types of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

  • All non-Hodgkin lymphomas start in white blood cells called lymphocytes, but there are different categories of the disease
  • Doctors categorize the cancers based on whether they grow out of B cells or T cells
  • What type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma a person is diagnosed with will determine treatment
