Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in Children

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is the most common type of childhood lymphoma, a cancer that affects the immune system. Most types of childhood non-Hodgkin lymphoma are fast-growing.

Pediatric oncologists, specialists in cancers affecting children, work together as a team at the Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, to provide the most effective treatments for children and teens with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Our doctors and support specialists offer a family-centered approach to cancer care, in which your child and family are an important part of the healthcare team.

Doctors at NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center diagnose and manage non-Hodgkin lymphoma in adults.
