Hodgkin lymphoma (also known as Hodgkin’s disease or Hodgkin’s lymphoma) is cancer that develops from cells in the lymphatic system (part of the body’s immune system) called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell that helps the body fight infections. All other lymphomas are classified as non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).
Hodgkin lymphoma types include:
- Classical Hodgkin lymphoma
- Nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin lymphoma
