B cell lymphoma is a non Hodgkin’s type of cancer that develops within the lymphatic system, or the immune system. Hodgkin's as well as non Hodgkin's types of cancer affect the immune system. The lymphatic system is required by the body to fight various infections and diseases that occur in the body.
In fact, the lymphatic system is a complicated network of nodes and tissues and they are present all over the body. So, technically the cancer can occur anywhere in the body. The symptoms depend on the part of the body that is affected. Usually you will notice swollen nymph nodes and that is how the cancer is identified. The treatment for a B cell cancer is dependant on diffusing cells that are large. This can be achieved through chemotherapy.Diffusing the large B cells is a common type of the non Hodgkins cancer and it is done by passing the radioactive rays. Two out of every five cases of lymphatic cancer can be non Hodgkin’s B cell variety. Once the tumor is found out it is graded into the type and if it is not malignant and has not spread to the other parts then it is removed through surgery. Also, it is a very minor surgery and can be done through administering local anesthesia. The only kind of lymphatic cancer that cannot be treated are the stage III and the Stage IV. It is because the cancer has spread to the organs as well and to the organs. Otherwise when it is still in the nodes and tissues it can be treated effectively.
