What Is Cutaneous Lymphoma?

Battling a progressive disease begins with being armed with essential information.

Cutaneous lymphoma is a rare subtype of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Although it starts in the skin, cutaneous lymphoma does not classify as skin cancer because its cancer cells originate in white blood cells called lymphocytes, while skin cancers develop from other non-lymphoid cells.

Similar to many malignant diseases, treatment for cutaneous lymphoma will depend on your symptoms, cancer cell type, stage of disease, personal health profile, and other medications you may have undergone prior to New Hope Unlimited.

Types of Cutaneous Lymphomas

New Hope Unlimited offers a powerful combination of traditional and alternative treatments to over 200 cancers, including the two main types of cutaneous lymphoma:

Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma (CTCL)
Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) is the most common type of cutaneous lymphoma. The disease often manifests through red, scaly patches or plaques on the skin. An itchy sensation is common with almost 80 percent of patients with CTCL reporting the symptom. In many cases, CTCL mimics other skin issues like eczema, psoriasis, and other chronic dermatitis. As a result, some diagnoses of CTCL are delayed by years or decades. Only a small percentage of people with CTCL develop advanced disease, which presents ulceration, tumor formation, the involvement of lymph nodes, blood, and internal organs.

Cutaneous B-Cell Lymphoma (CBCL)
Cutaneous B-cell lymphomas (CBCL) accounts for about 20-25 percent of all cutaneous lymphomas. There are three main types of CBCL. (1) Primary cutaneous follicle center and (2) primary cutaneous marginal zone lymphomas are the most common forms of CBCL. They are slow growing and respond well to treatments. (3) Primary cutaneous diffuse large B-cell leg type makes up about 5-10 percent of the B-cell cutaneous lymphomas. It is prominent in older adults and has a female preponderance. Skin lesions can be single, multiple, or grouped.

Cutaneous Lymphoma Symptoms

Signs of cutaneous lymphoma include:

  • Flat, red, scaly patches on the skin
  • Raised bumps that may or may not ulcerate (tumors)
  • Thick, raised lesions that resemble a scab (plaques)
  • Unexplainable itching of the skin

It is important to know that cutaneous lymphomas share many symptoms with other less dangerous skin conditions, meaning patches or plaques on the skin does always signal cancer. If you have persistent symptoms, see your doctor to receive an accurate diagnosis.

What Causes Lymphoma of the Skin?

Currently, medical researchers do not know the specific causes of cutaneous lymphoma. However, the American Cancer Society notes that certain changes (mutations) in the DNA inside lymphocytes (immune system cells) might lead them to become lymphoma cells.

DNA changes associated with lymphoma of the skin are, in most cases, acquired after birth rather than being inherited. Some of these acquired changes may be because of outside causes (such as infections), but they more often occur for no scientifically-proven reason. Most lymphoma cells emerge alongside increase age, which may help explain why most skin lymphomas occur in older people.

Diagnostic Tests for Cutaneous Lymphoma

Early diagnosis is key to improving your cutaneous lymphoma prognosis and life expectancy. Dermatologists often work with pathologists, hematologists, and other experts to diagnose cutaneous lymphoma. Tests and procedures used to confirm CTCL or CBCL include:

  • Physical and medical examination
  • Blood tests
  • Skin biopsies
  • Imaging tests, such as:
    • Computerized tomography (CT) scans
    • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans
    • Positron emission tomography (PET) scans
