Causes

The exact cause of Burkitt’s lymphoma is not fully understood, but it is believed to be linked to the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a common virus that infects the majority of the world’s population. In individuals with weakened immune systems, such as those with HIV/AIDS or other immunodeficiency disorders, the Epstein-Barr virus can lead to the development of Burkitt’s lymphoma. Additionally, genetic factors and environmental factors may also play a role in the development of this type of lymphoma. Research suggests that certain genetic mutations and exposure to certain chemicals or toxins may increase the risk of developing Burkitt’s lymphoma. However, further research is needed to fully understand the causes of this disease.
