Hodgkin lymphoma

Hodgkin lymphoma is a type of blood or haematological cancer that starts in white blood cells known as lymphocytes. It is sometimes called Hodgkin disease.

Hodgkin lymphoma is a rare cancer. It occurs more often in younger people aged 15-29 years and in people over the age of 65 years.

The Cancer Institute NSW recommends that all people with cancer have their care overseen by a multidisciplinary team (MDT).

Use our Canrefer website to find multidisciplinary teams in NSW and ACT.

Being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful and confusing. Having the right information can help you talk to your cancer care team and be more involved in your care.
