About the disease

Pulmonary lymphoma is a cancer of white blood cells, which spreads to the lungs. There are two types of pulmonary lymphoma: primary and secondary. In primary pulmonary lymphoma cancer starts to proliferate in the lungs, usually in B cells. This is a much rare type of pulmonary lymphoma. It can develop in the lungs or in the bronchus. It represents less than 1% of all non-Hodgkin lymphomas and also 3-4% of all lymphomas that developed not in the lymph nodes. The person is diagnosed with primary pulmonary lymphoma after it was confirmed that lymphoma did not originate somewhere else.

Secondary pulmonary lymphoma develops in progressed cases of lymphoma when the cancer starts to spread throughout the body and affects other organs. Very often mediastinal lymph nodes are affected in this case as well. A mediastinum is box located in the middle of the chest near the lungs. If the lymph nodes, contained in the mediastinum, become malignant and start to spread, they can affect lungs as well. According to Radiopaedia.com, 12% of all patient with Hodgkin's disease and 3% of patients with non-Hodgkin disease develop pulmonary lymphoma as a secondary condition to their primary lymphoma.

There is also the type of pulmonary lymphoma, which is AIDS-related. This lymphoma develops in AIDS patients whose lungs had been affected. Overall, lymphoma is the cancer of white blood cells, which are responsible for fighting the infections.

Symptoms

  • Pain in the chest
  • A lump in the chest in some cases
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weight loss
  • Severe coughing

Diagnosis

  • During a general examination the doctor will examine medical history of the patient to determine if he/she had any pulmonary conditions in the past.
  • The doctor will listen to the lungs of the patient to rule out other conditions
  • A blood test can rule out the possibility of the an infection. It can also show the white blood count which is often abnormal in people with lymphoma.
  • Patient with lymphoma who are undergoing treatment or finished it needs  to be checked up regularly to avoid recurrence and also prevent the spread of lymphoma to other organs.
  • MRI/CT scans are useful in determining if there are nodule-like masses in the lungs, which can indicate malignancy. The lymph nodes in the mediastinum are often examined as well to determine if they are swollen or enlarged.
  • A biopsy is used to examine the sample of mass or the nodule which can be cancerous under the microscope and determine if it is malignant.

Treatment

  • A chemotherapy and radiation therapy can be used to shrink the tumor in the lungs and also lower the count of malignant white blood cells in the blood and block their proliferation.
  • Resection is used in severe cases when the lung had been damaged to the point it needs to be replaced with an artificial transplant.
