Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma — ICD 200 and 202
The term “non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma” covers the neoplasms of the lymphoreticular systems. The ASMR was 0.7 in 1963 and 1.1 in 1982 in men, while the respective figures for women were 0.4 and 0.4. The time trend for all age groups shows an increase in risk in the years 1963–1975, followed by a substantial decline during the years 1976–1982, which was similar, although in different ways, in both sexes. The 35–64 age group appears to have a similar time trend. Deaths from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma occur in childhood, after which its frequency declines a little until the age of 40–50 when there is another rise. The peak value in 1982 was about six deaths in men and three deaths in women, both sexes aged about 70.
