Purpose of Study 

Lymphocyte cancers are the fourth most common cancer in both men and women.  Research into the genetics and environmental factors contributing to lymphoid cancers is an important step to prevent and/or control these cancers.  Multiple diagnoses of lymphoid cancer within the same family may indicate the existence of genetic susceptibility.  We are interested in collecting family history information and blood samples from these families as an important step in identifying genes involved in lymphoid cancer susceptibility.

Eligibility 

To participate in this study, you must:

  • Have been diagnosed with a lymphoid cancer
  • Have a family history of lymphoid cancer

For the purpose of this study, lymphoid cancers include: Hodgkin lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, lymphocytic leukemia, and myeloma.
