If you or a loved one has leukemia or lymphoma, you have access to a team of specialists at Fairview. Adult and pediatric doctors who specialize in blood cancers provide innovative care  for people with leukemia as well as Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Leukemia
Leukemia is a cancer that begins in the blood-forming tissue of the body, such as bone marrow. Although it's often considered a childhood disease, leukemia is also common in adults.

Lymphoma
Lymphoma is a cancer that begins in cells of the immune system. Two common lymphatic cancers include Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.


When should you call your doctor?
Many of the early symptoms of leukemia and lymphoma are similar to other common illnesses, such as the flu. Headache, fatigue, weakness, fever and joint pain are common symptoms. If any of these symptoms continue over time, see your doctor.

Advanced symptoms are more noticeable. Contact your doctor if you experience any of the following:

  • Swelling or a painless lump in your neck, armpit or groin
  • Swelling in your abdomen
  • Frequent infections
  • Unexpected weight loss


These symptoms can be caused by conditions other than leukemia or lymphoma, so be sure to see your doctor.
