Treating Lymphoma in the Willamette Valley


What is Lymphoma?

Lymphoma is a type of cancer that begins in the lymphatic system, which is part of the immune system. The lymphatic system is a network of interconnected tissues and organs that help your body get rid of waste, toxins, and other unwanted material.

The lymphatic system includes lymph vessels, which are similar to blood vessels except that they carry lymph fluid instead of blood. The lymph vessels route this lymph fluid through lymph nodes to filter out harmful substances. Lymph nodes also contain special immune cells, known as lymphocytes, which attack and destroy germs to fight infection.

In lymphoma, abnormal lymphocytes grow at uncontrolled rates. In the early stages of the disease, the abnormal lymphocytes grow in the lymph node. As the cancer progresses, the abnormal lymphocytes begin growing in other parts of the body.

Types of Lymphoma

There are several types of lymphoma, each one requiring a different approach and timing for treatment.
