I'm so sorry to hear your son developed this problem. I've seen studies that show a slight increase with long-term Imuran use and others that show no relationship. Not that it really matters to you at this point. I've not seen anyone on this forum discussing lymphoma or leukemia, and I've never met anyone who had this outcome.
I'm just very sorry your son and your family are having to go through this, and hope the outcome is good for him.
