Lymphoma is a group of cancers originating in the lymphatic system, which helps the body fight infection and disease.
Because of City of Hope's vast experience in treating patients with lymphoma, the Toni Stephenson Lymphoma Center at City of Hope is one of the biggest and most successful treatment centers in the nation.
City of Hope physicians treat many types of the disease – not only Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, but their subtypes as well – even rarer types that have not been formally classified.
Here, Larry W. Kwak, M.D., Ph.D., the Tim Nesvig Lymphoma Research Fellow at City of Hope and director of the Toni Stephenson Lymphoma Center, answers questions about lymphoma, its diagnoses and treatments.
