Blood & Lymphoid Cancer

Revised 2015

Guidelines for treating these types of cancer have been developed by the Lymphoma Tumour Group and the Leukemia/BMT Program.

For health professional information on treating this cancer, please see our Cancer Management Guidelines.

The lymphoid system consists of: lymph nodes, lymphatic vessels, lymph fluid and lymph tissue in other organs such as the spleen, thymus, bone marrow. The lymphoid system is part of the immune system, which protects against infection.

The lymph nodes are small organs occurring in many places in the body, particularly in the chest, neck, armpit, groin and amongst the blood vessels of the intestines. Lymphatic vessels are a network to carry lymph fluid between the nodes and through the body.

See the specific pages for the different types of lymphoid cancers for further details.
