T-Cell Lymphomas are rare diseases, with about 450 Australians diagnosed each year. To add to the complexity of T-Cell Lymphomas, there are over 20 different types of the disease.
T-cells have the freedom to go wherever they wish, which is why we can see t-cell Lymphomas in different organs outside of lymph nodes. Sometimes in the skin, sometimes in the gut and sometimes in other organs that we don’t traditionally expect Lymphomas to be in. For this reason, t-cell lymphomas can be hard to find and often difficult to diagnose.
