CANCER

Lymphoma

Hodgkin's disease is a type of lymphoma distinguished by the presence of a particular kind of cancer cell called a Reed-Sternberg cell.

Hodgkin's disease - also known as Hodgkin's lymphoma - is an uncommon cancer of the lymphatic system, which is part of your immune system. It's named after the British physician Thomas Hodgkin, who first described the disease in 1832 and noted several characteristics that distinguish it from other lymphomas.

The cause of Hodgkin's disease is unknown. There is strong evidence that, in some people, Epstein-Barr virus infection causes B lymphocytes to become cancerous and transform into Reed-Sternberg cells. Although there are some families in which more than one person has Hodgkin's disease, the disease does not appear to be contagious.

In Hodgkin's disease, cells in the lymphatic system grow abnormally and may spread beyond the lymphatic system. As the disease progresses, it compromises your body's ability to fight infection. Many initial signs and symptoms may be similar to those of influenza, such as fever, fatigue and night sweats. Eventually, tumors develop. Hodgkin's disease most commonly affects people between the ages of 15 and 34 and people older than age 55.

Hodgkin's disease is one of two common types of cancers of the lymphatic system. Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, the other type, is far more common.

Today, 85 percent of people who receive initial treatment experience long-term remission. Advances in diagnosis, staging and treatment of Hodgkin's disease have helped to make this once uniformly fatal disease highly treatable with the potential for full recovery. The overall survival rate after 15 years is almost 70 percent.

Signs and symptoms

Signs and symptoms of Hodgkin's disease may include:

  • Painless swelling of lymph nodes in your neck, armpits or groin

  • Persistent fatigue

  • Fever and chills

  • Night sweats

  • Unexplained weight loss

  • Loss of appetite

  • Severe itching
