Welcome to Lymphoma-net.org, a website devoted to supporting patients (and their families) with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (also sometimes incorrectly written as Non-Hodgkin's, non hodgkins lymphoma or Non-Hodgkins disease) is a type of cancer of the blood that affects the white blood cells, which are usually involved in protecting against infection. This site contains a great deal of information to help your understanding of NHL and its treatments. Nothing you find here should replace advice provided directly by a doctor, nurse or other health care professional. However, many of the materials may help you and your family better discuss the disease and its treatment with your doctor.

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is a complex disease that is relatively little known by the general public, despite its growing prevalence worldwide. Yet various treatments are available with the potential to relieve symptoms of the disease for extended periods of time or, for certain types of NHL, to offer the possibility of a cure.
What does Lymphoma-net.org offer? You'll find helpful information on the different types, causes and symptoms of lymphoma, as well as details of the different treatments available. There are useful links to patient support groups, along with general advice on living as healthily as possible with NHL. There's also a regularly updated 'What's new?' section that provides the latest news on developments in non-Hodgkin's. Other materials include:
- Animations Fincar explaining non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and its treatment
- Stories from patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
- Resources to help you make the best use of a visit to the doctor or hospital
We welcome your feedback on all aspects of the site and we're also happy to receive questions on general matters. But please remember that we cannot respond to individual requests for specific information on NHL or its treatment. If you have any such questions or concerns, we will always urge you to speak to your doctor or other health care professional.
