The lymphatic system is the drainage system of the body. Excess fluids are gathered into the lymph nodes, from which they are drawn to the kidneys for disposal.

Risk factors for this type of cancer are:

  • A family history of lymphoma
  • Radiation exposure
  • Too much exposure to the sun over any period of time
  • Second degree burns (or worse)

Fluid appears in the area affected to cool off the burn, whether caused by fire, sun or radiation, and to create a barrier to promote healing. When this occurs in the same area of the body too frequently, that area begins the negation process. Also, in this way chronic viral infections have a similar effect upon the area of the body. They tend to weaken the immune response of the body and the lymphatic system is overworked and begins to break down. In this case, the cells begin to react to the negation of life.

Symptoms of this kind of cancer include paleness, as the lymph is more prevalent in the blood system; fatigue and tiredness resulting from the constant battle your body is going through; a loss, first in fatty tissue, and then of healthy body tissue. This is evidenced by loss of weight. Repeated infections occur due to the lymphatic system being overworked and taxed to the max. This can occur in patients and people that do not allow themselves to fully recover from an illness and contract one cold or flu or illness after another with little or no recovery in between. Another sign that may indicate this condition is easy bruising, joint pain and nosebleeds. These indicate too much infection occurring in the body as membranes burst to check the infected area and add to the pressure or pain factor.
