Lymphoma is a group originated in the lymph nodes or other lymphoid tissues of malignant tumors, the common classification can be divided into Hodgkin's lymphoma disease (referred to as HD) and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (the NHL) two categories, see lymphoid tissue cells and (or) tumor cell hyperplasia, the clinical to the most typical painless swollen lymph nodes, liver and spleen enlargement often, late stage cachexia, fever and anemia. Lymphoma cell morphology is extremely complex, the new 2008 WHO classification of lymphoma, there are 80 subtypes. Because the location and extent of lesions varied clinical manifestations are inconsistent, the primary site in the lymph nodes, but also in extranodal lymphoid tissue, for example, will the tonsils, nasopharynx, gastrointestinal tract, spleen, bone or skin and so on. Results of primary lymphoid tissues become more common in the Ministry of NHL.
A common classification of lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease more common in youth, children rarely, the first time the symptoms are often painless cervical or supraclavicular lymphadenopathy (60% to 80%), left more than right, followed by axillary lymph nodes , enlarged lymph nodes can be mobile, but also adhesion to each other, integration into the block, palpation of the cartilage-like feel, if the lymph node nerve, can cause pain and sadness, only a small number of patients without prior deep superficial lymph nodes, deep lymph nodes enlargement can compress the adjacent organs, the performance of compression symptoms, such as mediastinal lymphadenopathy can cause coughing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, pulmonary atelectasis and superior vena cava disorder; retroperitoneal lymph nodes may compress the ureter, causing hydronephrosis ; epidural spinal cord compression caused mass psychosis.
