Lymphoma is cancer of the lymphatic system, which is an important part of the immune system. The lymphatic system consists of conduits or tubes throughout the body with filters called lymph nodes along the path. The system carries a clear fluid with immune fighting cells such as lymphocytes.

certain chemicals such as benzene, insecticides, or herbicides; and

some viruses such as HIV, HTLV 1 and 2.
