Lymphoma, lymphoblastic
A rapidly moving, aggressive form of lymphoma most often seen in children or young adults. Treatment may be chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, medication, and/or bone-marrow transplant. Precautionary treatment of the central nervous system is usually included, because of lymphoblastic lymphoma’s ability to rapidly spread to the CNS.
