What is lymphoma? is a short animation that explains what lymphoma is, how it develops and the treatment options available. We believe it will be a valuable resource for anyone affected by lymphoma.
Lymphoma is the most common type of blood cancer in adults and the fifth most common cancer in the United Kingdom following breast, prostate, lung and bowel cancer. However, lymphoma is complex and less well known and understood than other cancers, so it is important to raise awareness of it so that more people can recognise it and be treated earlier.
Lymphoma Action is the UK’s only charity dedicated to lymphoma, the 5th most common cancer.
We’ve been providing in-depth, expert information and wide-ranging support for over 35 years, helping thousands of people affected by lymphoma, their families and loved ones.
We inform with trusted information, endorsed by medical experts, empowering people to understand the complexities of lymphoma. We also raise awareness of its signs and symptoms.
We support those affected by lymphoma and their families at every stage, helping them from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond. We also support medical professionals to deliver the best possible care.
We connect those affected by lymphoma to our expert staff and volunteer team, and to those going through similar experiences.
We’re here to make sure no one faces lymphoma alone.
