Viral lymphomagenesis[edit]

Certain viruses appear to drive lymphoma. This is what's known: doi:10.1111/bjh.12788 JFW | T@lk 14:02, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Keeping the lead simple[edit]

This content "The main class are malignant neoplasms (that is, cancer) of the lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell that belongs to both the lymph and the blood and pervades both. Thus lymphomas and leukemias are both tumors of the hematopoietic and lymphoid tissues, and lymphomas and lymphoid leukemias are closely related, to the point that some of them are unitary disease entities that can be called by either name (for example, adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma)"

Belong more in the body of the article than the lead. We should try to keep the lead simplier. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:34, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

You were right. I put that info in the body and also moved the etymology there too. Thanks. Quercus solaris (talk) 02:50, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Large B-cell lymphoma arising in HHV8-associated multicentric Castleman's disease[edit]

This article is about a very specific type of lymphoma and likely doesn't warrant its own article. Compassionate727 (talk) 15:54, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

Not particularly helpful for various practical reasons, including familiarity with this suggested recipient article. Topic is linked from here, and full merger incorporation here would be disproportionate. Article is already tagged for expansion which would be a more encyclopedic approach. Will leave merger tag for now. Aim to expand article when able, and consider detag merger then. FeatherPluma (talk) 16:19, 13 May 2015 (UTC)
This is a subarticle and I see no reason not to leave it as such. There are many subtype of lymphoma and we should likely have articles on most of them. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:44, 13 May 2015 (UTC)
Alright, I trust you guys know what you're talking about. I was just patrolling when I came across it. I thought maybe it was a stub because the article was about too specific a type of lymphoma, the obvious solution being to merge it with this. Compassionate727 (talk) 02:51, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
It is not an unreasonable suggestion. But with dozens of subtypes (about 70) that would make this article too large IMO. And we have dozens of articles on other specific types. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 06:00, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
Adding some content as time permits. I agree it's a stub at this point, but there is probably enough literature to expand and make a proper article of it. Altho I do not favor merger, I will leave the merger tag / conversation open for now, because that is not altogether unreasonable. Nonetheless, I propose to detag the merger discussion in aprx 10 days if no further input. FeatherPluma (talk) 17:21, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
Detagged after expansion. FeatherPluma (talk) 16:20, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
