About the disease

Thyroid lymphoma is a cancer that originated in the thyroid gland lymphocytes. This is a rare type of lymphoma. In most cases lymphoma develops in the lymph nodes. This is the cancer of white blood cells, responsible for fighting the infections and protecting the body. White blood cells are part of the immune system.

It makes the lymphocytes infiltrate the thyroid gland and affect its work. Nonetheless,, the risk of developing thyroid lymphoma, even if a person has Hashimoto's thyroiditis, is very rare. Thyroid lymphoma accounts of only 5% of all malignant processes in the thyroid gland. It also accounts for 2% of all lymphoma cases. There had been no other causes directly linked to thyroid lymphoma.

It is not clearly known what else can cause the lymphocytes to become malignant in the thyroid gland. It had been noted, however, that thyroid lymphoma is more common among women. This condition also mostly affects people older than 65 years. Leading healthy lifestyle and keeping metabolic process in the normal range are important in preventing all malignancies in the thyroid gland.
