A lemma, or a subsidiary math theorem, is a theorem that one proves as an interim stage in proving another theorem. Lemmas can be viewed as scaffolding for the proof. Usually, they are not that interesting in and of themselves, but there are exceptions. See the related link for examples of lemmas that are famous independently of the main theorems.
