Lymphoma SPOREs

There are two distinct subtypes of lymphoma — Hodgkin lymphoma and a diverse group of non-Hodgkin lymphomas. According to the NCI Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program statistical data, it is estimated that in 2022 there will be a total of 8,540 new cases and 920 estimated deaths attributed to Hodgkin lymphoma in the U.S. The incidence rates for this disease in 2015-2019 averaged at 2.6, and death rates were estimated at 0.3 per 100,000 annually based on 2016-2020 statistics. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma has been significantly more prevalent with 80,470 estimated new cases and 20,250 estimated deaths in 2022. Annual incidence estimated for years 2015-2019 was 19.0, and death rate was 5.1 per 100,000 as calculated per years 2016-2020. Despite favorable trends, lymphomas remain a serious medical problem affecting individuals of all ages.
