Lymphoma

Lymphoma is a cancer of a part of the immune system called the lymph system. There are many types of lymphoma. One type is Hodgkin disease. The rest are called non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Non-Hodgkin lymphomas begin when a type of white blood cell, called a T cell or B cell, becomes abnormal. The cell divides again and again, making more and more abnormal cells. These abnormal cells can spread to almost any other part of the body. Most of the time, doctors don't know why a person gets non-Hodgkin lymphoma. You are at increased risk if you have a weakened immune system or have certain types of infections. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma can cause many symptoms, such as . -Swollen, painless lymph nodes in the neck, armpits or groin. -Unexplained weight loss . -Fever . -Soaking night sweats . -Coughing, trouble breathing or chest pain . -Weakness and tiredness that don't go away . -Pain, swelling or a feeling of fullness in the abdomen . Your doctor will diagnose lymphoma with a physical exam, blood tests, a chest x-ray, and a biopsy. Treatments include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, biological therapy, or therapy to remove proteins from the blood. Targeted therapy uses substances that attack cancer cells without harming normal cells. Biologic therapy boosts your body's own ability to fight cancer. If you don't have symptoms, you may not need treatment right away. This is called watchful waiting. NIH: National Cancer Institute.  [from MedlinePlus]

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a common neoplasia of B lymphocytes in which these cells progressively accumulate in the bone marrow, blood, and lymphoid tissues. The clinical evolution of the disorder is heterogeneous, with some patients having indolent disease and others having aggressive disease and short survival (summary by Quesada et al., 2012). Genetic Heterogeneity of Susceptibility to Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Susceptibility loci have been mapped to chromosomes 11p11 (CLLS1; 609630) and 13q14 (CLLS2; 109543) by genomewide linkage analysis and translocation studies, respectively. Susceptibility mapping to chromosome 9q34 (CLLS3; 612557) is associated with downregulation of the DAPK1 gene (600831). Genomewide association studies have identified susceptibility loci on chromosomes 6p25.3 (CLLS4; 612558) and 11q24.1 (CLLS5; 612559). [from OMIM]

Mantle cell lymphoma

Mantle cell lymphoma is a rare form of malignant non-Hodgkin lymphoma (see this term) affecting B lymphocytes in the lymph nodes in a region called the ``mantle zone''. [from ORDO]

Finding
7.

Chronic lymphatic leukemia

A chronic lymphocytic/lymphatic/lymphoblastic leukemia (CLL) is a neoplastic disease characterized by proliferation and accumulation (blood, marrow and lymphoid organs) of morphologically mature but immunologically dysfunctional lymphocytes. A CLL is always a B-cell lymphocytic leukemia as there are no reports of cases of T-cell lymphocytic leukemias. [from HPO]

Lymphoma

A cancer originating in lymphocytes and presenting as a solid tumor of lymhpoid cells. [from HPO]

Abnormality of the intestine

An abnormality of the intestine. The closely related term enteropathy is used to refer to any disease of the intestine. [from HPO]

Gastric lymphoma

The concept of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas was introduced by Isaacson and Wright (1983). MALT lymphomas are now recognized as a distinct subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (605027). B-cell lymphomas of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT lymphomas) are the most common form of lymphoma arising in extranodal sites, in most cases arising in the gastric mucosa (Isaacson and Spencer, 1995). [from OMIM]

Mantle cell lymphoma

A form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma having a usually diffuse pattern with both small and medium lymphocytes and small cleaved cells. It accounts for about 5% of adult non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the United States and Europe. The majority of mantle-cell lymphomas are associated with a t(11;14) translocation resulting in overexpression of the CYCLIN D1 gene (GENES, BCL-1). [from MeSH]

Malignant lymphoma, large B-cell, diffuse

A type of B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (cancer of the immune system) that is usually aggressive (fast-growing). It is the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and is marked by rapidly growing tumors in the lymph nodes, spleen, liver, bone marrow, or other organs. Other symptoms include fever, night sweats, and weight loss. There are several subtypes of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. [from NCI]

Lymphatic Diseases

The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs. It is made up of. -Lymph - a fluid that contains white blood cells that defend against germs. -Lymph vessels - vessels that carry lymph throughout your body. They are different from blood vessels. -Lymph nodes - glands found throughout the lymph vessels. Along with your spleen, these nodes are where white blood cells fight infection. Your bone marrow and thymus produce the cells in lymph. They are part of the system, too. The lymphatic system clears away infection and keeps your body fluids in balance. If it's not working properly, fluid builds in your tissues and causes swelling, called lymphedema. Other lymphatic system problems can include infections, blockage, and cancer.  [from MedlinePlus]
