About Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Hodgkin's disease is a malignant cancer characterized by progressive enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, and lymphoid tissue. Hodgkin's lymphoma, or Hodgkin's cancer, is uniquely identified by the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells on microscopic examination. Hodgkin's lymphoma symptoms include night sweats, enlarged lymph nodes, splenomegaly, and back pain. Treatment entails radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Hodgkin's lymphoma prognosis is generally good, provided that the disease is detected early.
