What Is Hodgkin’s Disease?
Hodgkin’s disease is a type of cancer called a lymphoma, which is a cancer of the lymphatic system. (The disease is sometimes also referred to as Hodgkin’s lymphoma.)
Lymphoma is a disease in which cancer cells form in a person’s lymphatic system and start to grow uncontrollably. There are several different types of lymphomas, and they are divided into two broad categories: Hodgkin’s disease and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
