Every 28 minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with lymphoma.
Lymphoma is a form of blood cancer that occurs when certain cells in the blood, known as lymphocytes, divide and grow in an out-of-control manner and cease to function effectively. As a result, the body is unable to fight off infection or other forms of cancer. However, lymphoma is treatable, and early diagnosis is important for ensuring that patients receive treatment in a timely manner.
During this year’s Lymphatic Cancer Awareness Week (11–17 September), the Lymphoma Association is aiming to raise awareness of lymphoma so that more people know the symptoms to watch out for.
