Our team of expert doctors, nurses and cancer specialists offers the region’s most advanced medical and technological expertise, all while preserving a patient-centric environment that’s focused on treating you, not just your cancer.  

Lymphoma is cancer of the lymphatic system – your body's immune defense against infection and cancer. There are many types of lymphoma, including more than 100 subtypes, which fall into two main categories:

  • Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma

Many lymphomas look the same under a microscope, but each responds to treatment in a different way. We conduct a molecular analysis of your cancer. This means you receive a highly accurate diagnosis and a treatment plan targeted to your specific type of lymphoma.

The symptoms of lymphoma are the same as for many illnesses. You should make an appointment to see a doctor if you have one or more of the following symptoms. These may be a sign of lymphoma, or another health condition. 

  • Fever that doesn’t go away
  • Itchy skin
  • Night sweats
  • Painless, swollen lymph nodes in your neck, armpits or groin area not related to a bacteria or viral infection
  • Unexplained, persistent lack of energy
  • Unexplained weight loss
