Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL)


Mantle Cell Lymphoma is a type of cancer in the lymphatic system caused by uncontrolled growth of B lymphocytes found in the follicular mantle area of the lymph nodes. MCL accounts for 6% of non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas.

The increase of malignant or abnormal B lymphocytes in the bone marrow leaves little space for red blood cells or platelets, therefore, their quantity decreases. This leads to the appearance of symptoms such as fatigue or an increased susceptibility to infections.
B cells can accumulate in lymph nodes or organs such as the spleen, liver, intestines, among others; this is perceived as inflammation of the nodes or the organ where they are located.
