Lymphoma refers to a group of cancers in a person’s lymph nodes. Lymph nodes – small bean-shaped organs found in clusters throughout the body, including in the underarms, groin, neck, chest and abdomen, and in the stomach, intestines and skin – play an important part in your body's defense against infection. They produce lymph, which travels throughout your body in the lymph system, and filters impurities from the body.
