It is a type of cancer that originates in the lymphatic system. There are two main types of lymphoma. Hodgkins lymphoma, or Hodgkins disease, causes the cells in the lymphatic system to abnormally reproduce, eventually making the body less able to fight infection. All other types of lymphoma are called non-Hodgkins lymphomas. Cancers that spread to lymph nodes from other parts of the body are not lymphomas.
Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
