What is Hodgkin's disease?

Hodgkin's disease is a rare type of cancer found of the lymphatic system. It is characterized by its orderly spread to other lymph nodes, and can also spread to the lungs, liver, and bone marrow. The purpose of the lymphatic system is to protect the body against viruses and bacteria. The exact cause of Hodgkin's disease is unknown. Hodgkin's disease gets its name because it was first described by a British physician named Thomas Hodgkin.

Signs and symptoms of Hodgkin's disease can mimic other less serious diseases. Symptoms can include:

  • Swollen painless lymph nodesc
  • Persistent fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Fever
  • Itchy skin

Traditional treatment options for Hodgkin's disease


Treatment for Hodgkin's disease varies depending on stage of diagnosis with highly adverse side effects. The earlier the diagnosis, the more effective the treatment may be. Treatment options generally include the use of toxic medicines. Your doctor may suggest:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Bone marrow transplant
  • Stem cell transplant

Radiation therapy may also be considered an option for some Hodgkin's disease patients. Radiation therapy is used in an attempt to destroy cancerous cells and cause a reduction in tumor size. It is most often used for Hodgkin's disease that has metastasized. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy are often performed simultaneously.
