    • Lymphatic system
      Every mammal in Earth has lymphatic vessels
      The vessels are networks of thin tubes that branch into tissues throughout the body
      This vessels carry a fluid called lymph, which is colorless and originated from interstitial fluid
    • What does the lymph carries?
      The main component that the lymph is carrying are the lymphocytes
      Lymphocytes are the infection-fighting cells
      Lymphocytes remove infectious cells by phagocytes and it also carries fats from the small intestine to the blood
    • Main Functions of the Lymph
      Collect and return interstitial fluid, including plasma protein to the blood.
      Defend the body against disease by producing lymphocytes
      Absorbs lipids from the intestine and takes them to the blood
    • Which organs are involved?
      Some of the organs that are involved in the lymphatic system are:
      Bone Marrow  B-Cells
      Lymph Nodes  These might become enlarged when the body is infected
      Thymus  T-Cells
    • Filters
      There are two types of filters, the blood filter and the filters for the lymph.
      The Lymph nodes are those in charge of filtering the lymph.
      The spleen is the other filter, but this one is used to clean up the blood.
    • Some diseases
      Lymphoma: We are talking about this disease more.
      Lymphatic Obstruction
    • WhatisLymphoma
      The Lymphoma is a type of cancer that attacks the lymphatic system
    • Lymphoma causes
      There are no specific causes for the lymhoma, but researches have found that most of the people that have this disease have had drugs to supress their inmune system
    • LymphomaSymptoms
      The most common symptom is a painless bump in the lymph nodes of the neck, underarm, or groin.
      Fevers, night sweats, tiredness, weight loss, itching, and reddened patches on the skin. Sometimes there is nausea, vomiting, or abdominal pain.
      After time, the body becomes unable to attack diseases.
    • LymphomaTreatment
      For low grade lymphoma, the doctor might wait some time, until the disease shows signs that is spreading. Then he might apply some radiations to the zone, so that it can be eliminated.
      For a little more advanced grades, the doctor might apply chemoterapy and radiation.
    • LifeExpectancy of someonewithlymphoma
      There are several forecasts of how long a person can live with lymphatic cancer (Lymphoma). They differ from a few days, up to a normal life.
      Depending on the different treatments that the people receive, will last longer, or the cancer will be eradicated.
    • LymphaticObstruction
      There are many causes for this disease, including some infections, trauma, tumors, surgeries or radiation therapy.
      This is also a congenital disease.
      This happens because of the removal of a tissue near the axilla.
