Hodgkin's lymphoma is cancer of the lymph system, which is the network that carries lymph fluid, nutrients, and waste material between the body tissues and the bloodstream to help protect a person against disease.
Symptoms of Hodgkin's lymphoma include enlargement of the lymph nodes, fever, appetite loss, weight loss, and night sweats.
Hodgkin's lymphoma affects men more often than women. The cause of Hodgkin's lymphoma is not known.
Treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma depends on the stage of the lymphoma and may include radiation or chemotherapy.
