Lymphoma is the most common blood cancer. The two main forms of lymphoma are Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).
Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, or CTCL, describes many different disorders with various symptoms.
Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) can be difficult to diagnose in early stages as the signs and symptoms and skin biopsy findings can be similar to other skin conditions.
Treatment is very individualized and specific to each person depending on the symptoms and stage of the disease.
Although there is continuing research, at this time no single factor has been proven to cause this disease.
Cutaneous lymphomas affect thousands of individuals worldwide.
