This chapter on lung cancers is aiming to summarize the evidence-based current management for lymphoma, covering Hodgkin’s and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. We hope to ease the understanding in the appropriate delineation of tumor volumes/fields along with related case presentations covering diagnostic images, contouring, slice by slice final plan examples; accompanied by up-to-date key literature review.
