Blood Leukemias versus Lymphomas!

I cant tend to understand this at all. I've wikied and read up texts, but it all tends to complicate things all the more.

Could you spare 2 minutes and simplify the classification of WBC disorders for me?

im so confused about NHL and HL and B-cell lymphomas all being used interchangeably in questions.

Pretty please :sorry:
