Specialized Expertise for Each Patient’s Needs

Lymphoma is cancer of the lymphatic system, which includes the body’s 600 lymph glands (nodes), the liver, and the spleen. The lymphatic system is part of the immune system, which helps the body fight infection and disease.

While some lymphomas can be life-threatening, many can be treated successfully, and some might not require treatment until years after diagnosis. 

Whether our patients require aggressive treatment or a watch-and-wait approach, our dedicated team of lymphoma specialists at UT Southwestern offers expert, individualized care. 

Highlights of our program include:

  • Specialized expertise in diagnosing each unique variation of lymphoma
  • Specifically targeted treatments tailored to each patient’s needs and variation of the disease
  • In cases that require bone marrow transplantation, UT Southwestern’s Bone Marrow Transplant program is one of the top programs of its kind in the country
  • A broad range of support services that provide care beyond treatment, for both our patients and their families 

Types of Lymphoma

Lymphoma is broken down into two main types:

  • Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma 

The main difference between the two is the type of lymphocyte (a kind of white blood cell) involved. 

There are more than 30 unique varieties of non-Hodgkin lymphoma alone. Approximately 80,000 new cases of lymphoma are diagnosed in the U.S. each year, with non-Hodgkin lymphoma making up about 90 percent of those cases.
