Hodgkin Lymphoma

Hodgkin lymphoma can occur at any age, although most people who are diagnosed with this kind of lymphoma are between the ages of 15 and 35 or are aged 55 and over.

Hodgkin lymphoma has characteristics that distinguish it from other diseases classified as lymphoma, including the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells. These are large, cancerous cells found in Hodgkin lymphoma tissues, named for the scientists who first identified them. Hodgkin lymphoma is one of the most curable forms of cancer.

There are a number of different types of Hodgkin lymphoma:

  • nodular sclerosis
  • mixed cellularity
  • lymphocyte-rich
  • lymphocyte-depleted

(These four are all called classical Hodgkin lymphoma)

  • nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin lymphoma (NLPHL).
