Cutaneous Lymphoma

Cutaneous Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphocytes or white blood cells that primarily affect the skin. Initially it may look like a common skin disorder like eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis. The disease looks different in each patient and symptoms of the disease can include itchy rashes or raised patches on the skin or tumors that can spread to the lymph nodes or internal organs.

There is no cure for Cutaneous Lymphoma, but there are a variety of treatment options available. When it’s at an early stage, treatment is usually directed at the skin and may include using creams, radiotherapy or a PUVA light therapy.
