High-grade non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL)
High-grade non-Hodgkin lymphomas are fast-growing types of lymphoma.
Any type of fast-growing lymphoma that isn't Hodgkin lymphoma is called a high-grade non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). This type of blood cancer happens when something goes wrong with the development of certain white blood cells (B lymphocytes or T lymphocytes).
More than 5,500 people find out they have a form of high-grade NHL each year in the UK.
The most common type is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), but there are a number of others such as Burkitt lymphoma and mantle cell lymphoma. Most of the information in this section will be relevant to people with all types of high-grade NHL, but do speak to your healthcare team about which parts of this information are relevant to you.
