‘Lymphomas’ is one of the most feared subjects for medical students and training doctors sitting an exam. It is frequently regarded as a difficult one, highly complicated, continuously changing, and almost reserved for experts. The aim of this web section is to transform learning on lymphomas into an easy and enjoyable experience by using a very visual and didactic format, with plenty of images, succinct comments, and revision questions. It is mainly addressed to junior doctors taking their first steps in this field or preparing for their exams, but it is also suitable for general oncologists or haematologists who are not lymphoma specialists but want to keep updated on this topic and to enjoy it while doing so.
