Skin lymphoma

Lymphoma of the skin or cutaneous lymphoma is a type of skin cancer. It forms when abnormal lymph cells (lymphocytes) accumulate in the skin and grow uncontrollably. Lymphomas can develop in all organs of the lymph system when lymphocytes begin growing uncontrollably. Most lymphomas form in the lymph nodes. If the lymphocytes degenerate in the skin, skin lymphomas form.
