Follicular lymphoma accounts for about 1 in 5 cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the United States, or a little over 15,000 cases a year. The most common form of indolent lymphoma in the United States, its incidence rises with age. The malignancy begins with slowly progressive, painless lymphadenopathy, with systemic symptoms uncommon at presentation.
By the time it is detected, the disease is usually in an advanced stage, but treatment may not be necessary at first. Survival after diagnosis has historically been about 8-10 years and appears to be lengthening with improvements in treatment and supportive care.
