REDLAMP 11: Does a Family History of Lymphoma Increase My Risk?

Great strides in the understanding of familial predisposition to common forms of lymphoma including non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma, and chronic lymphocytic leukemia have been made in the past decade. Many lymphoma patients wonder if their family faces an increased risk. In this video Dr. Peter Martin explains the results from a recent study published in Blood, which sought to quantify these risks, and give a better understanding of how a family history of lymphoma increases the risk for other family members.
