At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), we believe one of the best ways to learn about us is through the eyes of our patients.
In this section, you'll read the personal accounts of Hodgkin lymphoma survivors who treated at one of our hospitals. Their stories are ones of courage, determination and hope.
What Is Hodgkin Lymphoma?
Hodgkin lymphoma, also known as Hodgkin’s disease, develops from lymphocytes (white blood cells responsible for immunity) in the lymphatic system. There are two general types of lymphoma: non-Hodgkin lymphoma and Hodgkin lymphoma.
Specific lymphocytes are essentially what make these two types of lymphomas different. Hodgkin lymphoma is marked by an abnormal B-lymphocyte known as the Reed-Sternberg cell.
