Cutaneous lymphoma is cancer
that develops in the form of tumors
of the skin. These are the proliferation of lymphocytes
whose starting point is the skin. It may, like lymphomas
, be derived from B lymphocytes or T lymphocytes, and clinical symptoms remain variable. In general, it may appear initially as red patches, diffuse redness, or skin nodules
of chronic progression
. When in doubt, a biopsy
of the area should be conducted to analyze the cells. Many sub-categories are distinguished, the most common is mycosis
fungoides, whose prognosis is generally favorable.
