Leukemia & Lymphoma Awareness month goes beyond wearing a colored ribbon or taping a flyer in a clinic window. Doctors should be attuned to differentials and patients must voice concerns over unexplained symptoms—perhaps insisting on accurate testing rather than empirical evaluations.

Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphocytes (white blood cells) that typically play a key role in fighting infection. The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system, comprising a network of conduits called lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph towards the heart. Collections of lymph nodes are found in the neck, underarms, chest, abdomen, and groin.
