The term lymphoma refers to cancers that arise in the lymph nodes and lymphatic tissues. Lymphomas can be Hodgkin's or non-Hodgkin's, depending on the biology of the cancerous cells. Symptoms include swollen glands, unexplained cough, fever, weight loss, night sweats or shortness of breath. Lymphomas are the third most common cancer in children, but cure rates for most children are also very high.
