    The CD79A (B Lymphoid Cell Marker) test helps detect the presence of B-cell lymphoma in the body.This cancer develops within the white blood cells (WBCs) or lymphocytes.

    There are two primary types of lymphocytes, out of which the B-type cells affect the disease growth. These cells are responsible for producing antibodies to ward off germs and infections. They are distributed throughout your body through the lymphatic system, keeping you safe from ailments.

    However, in B-cell lymphoma, your body overproduces these B-cells and negatively impacts your entire lymphatic system. These B-cells then transform into cancer cells and compromise your immune system.

    Moreover, these cells then duplicate till they are strong enough to ultimately overthrow your immune system, resulting in symptoms such as:

    • Loss of appetite 
    • Night sweats 
    • Stomach pain 
    • Cough or chest pain 
    • Persistent fatigue 
    • Itchy skin 
    • Enlargement of liver or spleen 
    • Rashes 
    • Skin lumps 
    • Painless swelling of lymph nodes 
    • Fever

    There are over 70 different types of B-cell lymphoma, depending on how the cancer cells mutate.

    Following are some of the most commonly found strains of B-cell lymphoma:

    • Follicular lymphoma
    • Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma
    • Burkitt lymphoma
    • Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia 
    • Mantle cell lymphoma
    • Lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma 
    • Marginal zone lymphoma

    The cause of this disease has not been found yet since doctors cannot trace the conversion of healthy B-cells to deadly cancer cells. However, comprehensive studies have allowed doctors to focus on some of the activities or conditions that might cause B-cell lymphoma, which include:

    • Obesity 
    • Viruses such as Epstein-Barr, Kaposi sarcoma, human immunodeficiency virus, HIV, etc.
