Key Statistics for Lymphoma of the Skin

On this page

The American Cancer Society’s most recent estimates for all types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) in the United States for 2024 are:

  • 80,620 new cases of NHL (44,590 in men and 36,030 in women)
  • 20,140 deaths from NHL (11,780 in men and 8,360 in women)

However, lymphomas of the skin are uncommon, accounting for only about 4% of all non-Hodgkin lymphomas. The rate of skin lymphomas has been rising over the past few decades, although it seems to have leveled off in recent years. The reasons for this are not known.

Survival rates for skin lymphomas can vary a great deal, depending on the type of lymphoma, how advanced it is, and how well it responds to treatment.
