Hodgkin’s lymphoma, formerly known as Hodgkin’s disease, is a cancer of the lymphatic system, which is part of your immune system.
Which Hodgkin’s lymphoma treatments are right for you depends on the type and stage of your disease, your overall health, and your preferences.
The main form of treatment is chemotherapy alone or chemotherapy, followed by radiotherapy. In a few cases, chemotherapy may be coupled with steroid medication. Surgery isn’t commonly used to treat the condition, except for the biopsy used to diagnose it.
