Dr. Rosen introduces himself and describes non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).

Dr. Rosen:
I am Steve Rosen. I am the Director of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University and also the Director of cancer programs at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. I am a medical oncologist and hematologist. My major focus is the treatment of blood cancers, which include leukemias, lymphomas, and multiple myeloma, and I also take care of a large number of women with breast cancer.

So, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is one of the blood cancers; it’s actually the most common blood cancer. Approximately 60,000 individuals will be diagnosed with a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma this year in the United States. It’s a disease that typically arises in lymph nodes; those are the glands of the body. It can also involve the spleen as a major site of initial involvement.
