A drop or plateau in incidence in the oldest age groups often indicates reduced diagnostic activity perhaps due to general ill health.The term ‘non-Hodgkin lymphoma’ describes a large group of lymphoma subtypes, which differ substantially in their cellular origin and clinical behaviour.The highest rates are in the 85 to 89 age group for males and the 80 to 84 age group for females.Incidence rates are significantly higher in males than females in most age groups.The subtypes can be broadly divided into B-cell lymphomas, T-cell lymphomas, and lymphoproliferative disorders not otherwise specified.B-cell lymphomas can be further divided into five main types: diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, marginal zone lymphomas, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, and Burkitt lymphoma.Projections are by their nature uncertain because unexpected events in future could change the trend.
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma mortality statistics by age Non-Hodgkin lymphoma survival statistics by age Non-Hodgkin lymphoma subtypes incidence statistics from the Haematological Malignancy Research Network Hodgkin lymphoma incidence statistics Cancer incidence statistics by age for all cancers incidence rates for males and females combined increased by 39% in the UK between 1993-19-2015.[1-4] The increase was of a similar size in males and females.
55% of non-Hodgkin lymphoma cases in the UK are in males, and 45% are in females.
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma incidence rates (European ) for persons are significantly lower than the UK average in Scotland and Wales, and similar to the UK average in all other UK constituent countries.
The gap is widest at age 0 to 04, when the age-specific incidence rate is 3.5 times higher in males than females.
