Other Cancers of the Lymphatic System

Hodgkin's Disease and Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma make up the vast majority of cancers of the lymphatic system. Most other cancers have metastasized from other parts of the body - common metastasized cancers include breast cancer and
other cancers in organs. Below are other lymphatic cancers or conditions that can become malignant (cancerous) that do not fall into the above groups.
