2. Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is the commonest type of lymphoma. Like Hodgkin lymphoma, it can also be further divided into several subtypes where each subtype has different features. NHL can be further divided into anaplastic large cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, B cell lymphoma, diffuse large cell lymphoma, diffuse mixed lymphoma, lymphoblastic lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, mycosis fungoides, primary central nervous system lymphoma, and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Prognosis-wise, NHL can be divided into indolent and aggressive. The various subtypes of NHL help oncologists to predict prognosis and decide which treatment option may be best.
