Lymphoma: clinical photo of the neck of a patient with a non-Hodgkin's type lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph nodes. Lymphomas give rise to a broad spectrum of malignancy, different types carrying a variable prognosis. The enlarged lymph nodes are the typical symptom (as visible here), along with weight loss, fever & sweating. Treatment is with combinations of chemotherapy drugs, although radiotherapy may be used for localized disease. The site of the biopsy examination can be seen at left, on the right of the patient's neck.
