Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL)
Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), is the most common type of lymphoma–a cancer that originates in your lymphatic system. NHL causes tumors to generate from the affected person's white blood cells. The American Cancer Society's estimates that for 2017, over 72,000 people will be diagnosed with NHL.
Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, like many cancers, can sometimes have a genetic component to its origin. However, Flint Law Firm is currently investigating and medically screening cases of Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that may be related to environmental toxins, contamination, or chemicals, like Benzene, used on the job.
