2. Ethnicity

For reasons that are not clear, people that belong to certain races are more likely to get lymphoma than other people are. For example, people of Asian or African heritage in the United States are more prone to the disease than Caucasian people are.

In addition, people that are living in developed nations are more likely to develop Non-Hodgkin lymphoma than those that don’t. Again, this does not mean people at higher risk will definitely get lymphoma, and those at a lower risk are not 100% safe. People from all categories should get regular health check-ups to help protect against lymphoma and other medical conditions.
