This cancer, formerly known as Hodgkin’s disease, starts in the cells of the lymph system, which is used to help the body fight off infections and disease. This cancer can begin almost anywhere in the body, because lymph tissue is found all over.
Hodgkin lymphoma is usually specified by large, abnormal lymphocytes inside the nodes. Any other types of lymphoma are classified as non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Signs and symptoms include chronic fatigue, night sweats, itching, fever, and swelling of the lymph nodes in the neck, armpit or groin. It’s most commonly diagnosed in patients ages 15 to 30, and those that are over 55. It’s also more common to see this cancer in people who have had Epstein-Barr infections in the past.
