Types of Blood Cancer
There are currently thousands of lawsuits against Monsanto and Roundup. The lawsuits claim that Roundup caused them to develop cancer. There are many different cancers on the list of lawsuits against Roundup. Below is a list of different types of cancers in Roundup lawsuits around the world.
Anaplastic Large T-Cell Lymphoma
Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is a rare type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). It is also one of the subtypes of T cell lymphoma. ALCL makes up roughly one percent of all NHLs. It makes up nearly 16 percent of all T cell lymphomas. For proper diagnosis, a biopsy is usually required. ALCL usually shows up in the lymph nodes, the skin or in various organs in your body.
Follicular B-Cell Lymphoma
Follicular B-Cell lymphoma makes up around 20% of lymphomas. It is slow-growing and usually is found in people starting at age 60. It occurs in the lymph nodes and the bone marrow. Treatment is possible, but it is possible that follicular lymphomas can develop into fast-growing lymphoma.
Mediastinal B-Cell Lymphoma
Mediastinal B-Cell Lymphoma is an aggressive diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Its features resemble classical Hodgkin lymphoma. It occurs in the thymus or in lymph nodes in the center of the chest
Large B-Cell Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL)
One of the more common cancers found in Roundup lawsuits. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma makes abnormal B lymphocytes. These cells normally help your body fight off infections. This type of cancer is aggressive, and treatment usually begins as soon as it is discovered.
Mantle Cell Lymphoma
Mantle Cell Lymphoma is a rare form of cancer. It gets its name because the cells originate from the mantle zone. Mantle Cell Lymphoma accounts for around 6 percent of the NHL cases in the U.S. This type of cancer usually involves the gastrointestinal tract and is also found in the bone marrow.
High-Grade Mature B-Cell Lymphoma
High-Grade Mature B-Cell Lymphoma is a fast-growing lymphoma. The high-grade moniker in its name means it is fast-growing, or aggressive.
Hairy Cell Leukemia
Hairy Cell leukemia is where the bone marrow makes too many lymphocytes. It is slow-growing. It is found by testing the blood and bone marrow. Hairy cell leukemia affects red blood cells, white blood cells, and blood platelets. It gets its name because this type of cancer looks hairy under a microscope.
Acute T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma
This type of lymphoma is fast-growing cancer that focuses on T cells. It can occur in children or adults. This type of lymphoma usually requires intense chemotherapy.
Thymic lymphoma is rare cancer that originates in the thymus. The thymus is a small organ directly behind the sternum. The heart and the lungs surround it. The thymus is an integral part of the immune system, which makes it a very serious and dangerous cancer.
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia is slow-growing cancer that affects your white blood cells, called lymphocytes. They are responsible for helping your body fight off infections. It causes your body to produce too many lymphocytes that do not function properly.
