Lymphomas often occur in the chest. Proton therapy can treat these tumors with high-dose radiation while minimizing damage and long-term side effects involving the heart, lungs, breast and esophagus. Both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients are likely to benefit, particularly those who have had prior therapy, those with recurring tumors, and children.

- Non-Hodgkin lymphomas (B-cell): Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, mantle cell lymphoma, marginal zone B-cell lymphomas, Burkitt lymphoma, hairy cell leukemia, primary central nervous system lymphoma
- Non-Hodgkin lymphomas (T-cell): precursor t-lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia, peripheral t-cell lymphomas)
