What is leukemia?

Leukemia is a type of cancer. It starts in the blood-forming cells of the bone marrow. Unlike lymphoma and other cancers, it is a mutation of blood-forming cells. More specifically, leukemia causes blood-forming cells to form, grow, act, and die improperly. These mutations cause leukemia cells to build up in bone marrow and crowd out normal cells. Further, these leukemia cells commonly leave the bone marrow and spread into the blood stream. Once leukemia cells enter the blood stream they cause the number of white blood cells to increase. The leukemia cells also travel through the blood stream to other organs causing a variety of health issues.

Leukemia can be either Myeloid Leukemia or Lymphocytic Leukemia depending on where the cancer starts. Myeloid Leukemia starts in the red blood cells, platelet-making cells, and some white blood cells. More specifically, Myeloid Leukemia starts in white blood cells that do not become lymphocytes. Whereas Lymphocytic Leukemia starts in the white blood cells that become lymphocytes.

Leukemia and Lymphoma

Lymphoma is a group of blood cell tumors that develop from lymphocytes, whereas leukemia is a group of cancers that usually start in the bone marrow and cause high numbers of abnormal white blood cells.

What is Lymphoma?

Lymphoma is a form of cancer that affects lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell) in the lymphatic system. More specifically, it is a malignancy in the lymphatic system that causes lympocytes (white blood cells) to grow abnormally and multiply uncontrollably. Further, these malignant lymphocytes (white blood cells) will typically spread throughout the body and the lympatic system including lymph nodes, tonsils, adenoids, spleen, thymus, bone marrow, and liver. These mutated lymphocytes cause significant health problems throughout the immune system and the body.

There are two main types of lymphoma including 1) Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and 2) Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma is the more common type of of lymphoma. Medical professionals can determine whether a lymphoma is Hodgkin or Non-Hodgkin through the presence of giant distinctive cells called Reed-Sternberg cells. A medical professional can identify these cells using a microscope. If the Reed-Sternberg cells are present in a biopsy, then the lymphoma is Hodgkin, if the cells are not present then the lymphoma is Non-Hodgkin.

Symptoms of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma NHL

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) is a term for various different types of cancer of the lymphatic system that results from lymphocytes or white blood cells which have undergone genetic changes. The condition presents as enlarged lymph nodes without pain, abdominal pain or swelling, chest pain, cough, and weight loss. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma can cause many symptoms, such as: 1) night sweats, 2) weight loss, 3) reoccuring fevers or chills, 4) abdomenal pain, 5) chronic weakness, fatigue, and tiredness, 6) coughing, 7) trouble breathing and chest pain, 8) painless enlargement of lymph nodes particularly in the neck (cervical lymphadenopathy), armpits, or groin), 9) headaches, 10) persistant back or bone pain, and 11) shortness of breath.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

A physician can typically diagnose lymphatic cancer including Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma NHL with a physical exam, blood tests, a chest x-ray, and a biopsy (lymph node and bone marrow tests). Once these tests are run, your medical professional should be able to assign the stage of the cancer. For more information on testing and cancer stages, please visit the "Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma" The Mayo Clinic.
