What Is B-Cell Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?
Bcell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a malignant, monoclonal (arising from a single cell) proliferation of lymphocytes that is preceded by lymphadenopathy and characterized by varying, less predictable spread than Hodgkin’s disease.
Lymphadenopathy is enlargement of lymph nodes greater than 1.5 cm caused by activation and increased production of lymphocytes and phagocytes (type of white blood cell that engulfs pathogens during infection) or invasion by a tumor.
Q: How does this type of lymphoma develop?
A: 80% to 85% of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma arise from B-lymphocytes (B-cells).
