KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry has what team officials believe is lymphoma -- a form of cancer -- and has been placed on the season-ending non-football illness list. Berry will undergo further testing at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta to complete the diagnosis.
"At this point in time, we don't have a definitive diagnosis," Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder said at a news conference Monday afternoon. "But the leading consideration for what he has right now is lymphoma.

Great player at Tennessee.
Prayers for his health.
Lymphoma killed my Father. I hope he has a treatable form. From what I’ve heard, there’s been huge advances recently in treating Lymphoma. I wish him the best.
Hopefully it is benign
Heartbreaking for anyone so young.
10 years I had lymphoblastic lymphoma which was found as a mass in my chest. I was treated with chemo for 2 years and I survived. I hope will do the same.
Sorry to hear about your dad. One of my best friends found a lump in her neck a year ago. Hodgkin’s lymphoma, stage 2. She had surgery, then chemo, then radiation. She’s doing pretty well right now, but we were all a wreck until Spring. They gave her a clean bill of health in May.
Green Bay signed running back DuJuan Harris to a contract while Harris was working as a car salesman in Jacksonville.
It was very fortunate for him as when they gave him a physical they discovered a mass in his chest. They removed it and he was OK but if not treated it could have been serious.
BTW, he didnt sell a single car.
......I think this is survivable. Don’t know if he will ever play football though. Sounds like a stellar individual.
Killed my grandfather when he was 27, back in 1928, when my mother was six months old. The man has my prayers.
Glad you’re still with us. It seems that is used to be that the worst diagnosis one could have is non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, although I guess from reading Wikipedia the categories are much more complex than that (and the non-Hodgkin’s designator involves so many types that it’s basically meaningless.)
I did see that yours was one usually found in children - was that the case with you?
After years of treatment and undergoing stem cell gathering, has been in remission for some time.
Unfortunately, lymphoma is recurrent but still treatable.Prayers for Eric and his family.
a prayer for Eric Berry
Best wishes to Mr. Berry and his family.
All the best to Eric for a complete recovery.
God bless him and keep him from having such a horrid diagnosis. If it must be may it be easy for him to overcome.
