Terminal lymphmatic cancer is a form of terminal cancer typically effects people ages 20 to 60. It can occur in teenagers, but it is rare. The younger the affected person, the shorter the expected life span from diagnosis. This kind of malignant tumor generally develops in scar tissue and inside the skin. It is only terminal when it develops in the body, as opposed to the skin. Often, people with this kind of cancer do not undergo chemotherapy. Chemotherapy can decrease the already short lifespan of people with TLC. Terminal lymphatic cancer cannot be treated, but the symptoms can be reduced with radiation. Common symptoms of TLC are:

In some cases, (with radiation, and a little luck) TLC infected tumors can go away in 2 or 3 years. Terminal Lymphatic Cancer is not well known, and has not been researched as much as many other cancers. The symptoms of TLC can be slow to start, but will quickly speed. In most cases the pulsing, sharp pains are first, and they grow in intensity. When teenagers develop this disease, it can be quick to change. It is much harder for doctors to determine the life span of teenagers' ever growing bodies. In adults, TLC, still lets the affected live a relatively normal life, Whereas in teenagers, they often must quit sports, and certain other strenuous activities.
