Is a type of cancer arising from the lining cells of capillaries?
Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is a cancer that develops from the cells that line lymph or blood vessels.
What produces lymphocytes and monocytes and all other blood cells?
Bone marrow contains tissue that produces lymphocytes. Other blood cells such as monocytes and leukocytes are produced in the bone marrow.
What is a malignant tumor of lymph nodes?
Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system, which is part of the body’s germ-fighting network. The lymphatic system includes the lymph nodes (lymph glands), spleen, thymus gland and bone marrow. Lymphoma can affect all those areas as well as other organs throughout the body.
What is the stationary lymphatic tissue along the path of lymph vessels that is located all over the body?
The Lymphatic System
|Right lymphatic duct||Large lymph vessel in the chest that trains lymph from the upper right part of the body|
|Lymph capillaries||Tiniest of all of the lymph vessels|
|Lymph nodes||Stationary lymph tissue along the path of lymph vessels|
|adenoids||Masses of lymph tissue in the nasopharynx|
What are the 4 main types of cancer?
Four main types of cancer are:
- Carcinomas. A carcinoma begins in the skin or the tissue that covers the surface of internal organs and glands.
- Sarcomas. A sarcoma begins in the tissues that support and connect the body.
- Leukemias. Leukemia is a cancer of the blood.
What are epithelial cancers?
Listen to pronunciation. (eh-pih-THEE-lee-ul KAR-sih-NOH-muh) Cancer that begins in the cells that line an organ.
Where are stem cells found that produce lymphocytes?
Lymphocytes arise from stem cells in bone marrow, and differentiate in the central lymphoid organs (yellow), B cells in bone marrow and T cells in the thymus. They migrate from these tissues and are carried (more…)
Where are the lymphocytes produced?
Lymphocytes develop in the thymus and bone marrow (yellow), which are therefore called central (or primary) lymphoid organs. The newly formed lymphocytes migrate from these primary organs to peripheral (or secondary) lymphoid organs (more…)

What is the most common early symptom of lymphoma?
The most common sign of lymphoma is a lump or lumps, usually in the neck, armpit or groin. These lumps are swollen lymph nodes, sometimes known as ‘glands’. Usually, they’re painless. Fatigue is different to normal tiredness.
What is the collection of stationary lymphatic tissue along the lymph vessels?
Lymphatic & Immune Systems
|LYMPHOID ORGANS ARE COMPOSED OF||LYMPH NODES, SPLEEN AND THYMUS GLAND|
|A COLLECTION OF STATIONARY SOLID LYMPHATIC TISSUE ALONG LYMPH VESSELS||LYMPH NODE|
|THIN, WATERY CLEAR FLUID FOUND WITHIN LYMPHATIC VESSELS AND COLLECTED FROM TISSUES THROUGHOUT THE BODY||LYMPH|
What fluid is found in lymph vessels?
It is made up of a network of lymphatic vessels that carry lymph — a clear, watery fluid that contains proteins, salts, and other substances — throughout the body.
