What is Hodgkin's Lymphoma?

Hodgkin's Lymphoma is a form of cancer which develops in a group of white blood cells called lymphocytes, which play an important role in maintaining the body's immune system. These lymphocyte cells are found in lymphoid tissue which can be found in all around the body, usually in the lymph nodes, bone marrow, the spleen, the tonsils and the digestive system. With lymphocytes present in many different parts of the body, Hodgkin's Lymphoma can start almost anywhere. There are some places where it is more common, however, such as the lymph nodes in the upper torso, as well as in the chest, arms and neck. Once the cells turn cancerous they can spread via the lymph nodes to other parts of the body.

If diagnosed early Hodgkin's Lymphoma can be successfully treated, but if it is allowed to develop to an advanced stage then it can spread into the bloodstream and vital organs. The most common symptom of Hodgkin's Lyn the lymph node which may appear swollen but is not usually painful. While a swollen lymph node could be caused by a whole range of other conditions, if combined with one or more of the secondary symptoms it could mean Hodgkin's Lymphoma is present. Secondary symptoms include fever, unexpected weight loss, hot sweats, fatigue and lack of appetite.

While there is no particular trigger for Hodgkin's Lymphoma there are a number of risk factors which make some people more likely to get the cancer at some point in their lifetime. Family history is one such risk factor. People with a close family member who have had the disease are more likely to develop Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The cancer can emerge at any age and in any gender, but cases are particularly prevalent in young men in their early to mid 20's.

What treatments are available for Hodgkin's Lymphoma?

There are a number of different treatments for Hodgkin's Lymphoma depending on the stage of the cancer and where exactly in the bodye most common treatments are those which aim to kill the cancerous cells and prevent them from reproducing, such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Chemotherapy uses anti-cancer drugs to kill the cells whilst radiotherapy involves the application of high-energy beams. The intensity and duration of the treatment depends on a number of factors, and both sets of treatments come with side-effects such a nausea, fatigue, hair loss and diarrhea.
