New Jersey’s Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Specialists

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is a type of pediatric cancer that is different in children compared to adults. About 5 percent of all childhood cancers are NHLs, while Hodgkin lymphoma makes up about 3 percent. Only about 900 cases are diagnosed in Americans up through the age of 19 each year, the American Cancer Society reports.

There are three main types of NHLs:

  • Lymphoblastic Lymphoma: Most common in teens—males particularly—lymphoblastic lymphoma makes up about 25 to 30 percent of NHL in kids.
  • Burkitt Lymphoma: Also known as small non-cleaved cell lymphoma, this type makes up about 40 percent of childhood NHLs in America. It is most common in boys when they are between five and 10 years old.
  • Large Cell Lymphoma: These are more common in older children and teens. Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) and Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma are the two types.
