Learn about Hodgkin Lymphoma

Hodgkin lymphoma occurs when cancer cells form in lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell critical to the body’s immune system and responsible for helping the body fight off infections. Also called Hodgkin’s disease, Hodgkin lymphoma is a rare cancer, most often affecting men and women between the ages of 55 and 84. Symptoms such as swollen lymph nodes and intermittent fevers mimic common illnesses like a cold or flu, and are often misdiagnosed.

Hodgkin Lymphoma Diagnostic Evaluations

Because Hodgkin lymphoma may be mistaken for less serious illnesses, it is often difficult to diagnose. Our Hodgkin lymphoma experts are trained and experienced in using a variety of diagnostic tools and technologies, including flow cytometry and MUGA scans, to accurately diagnose the disease and its stage. A bone marrow or lymph node biopsy may also be necessary to determine the tumor’s growth rate and whether the cancer has spread.

Hodgkin Lymphoma Treatments

Treatments for Hodgkin lymphoma vary depending on the stage and location of the disease. Two immunotherapy drugs have been approved to treat the cancer. Patients on chemotherapy will typically take several drugs together, since each works in a different way. A stem cell transplant may be recommended if the cancer has relapsed or has not responded to primary treatment. Radiation treatments may be combined with chemotherapy or other treatments, or to relieve pain or discomfort.

Hodgkin Lymphoma Supportive Care Services

Cancer treatments often cause side effects, and if they are severe enough, they may make patients feel too sick to continue treatment. At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), our integrative approach recognizes that treating cancer requires caring for the whole person. That means offering patients the supportive care services designed to combat side effects, including low white blood cell counts, which may be caused by radiation treatments, or nausea and fatigue, common side effects of chemotherapy.
