The treatment of Hodgkin disease depends mainly on the extent of involvement (the stage) and not on the type of disease. In certain circumstances however, the type of disease may predict the chances of certain areas of the body being affected, and may influence the doctors’ choice of treatment modality.
Hodgkin Lymphoma can be treated with chemotherapy, radiotherapy or a combination of both. The decision on the exact course of treatment is usually decided on a number of factors. The most important is the stage of your disease. Other factors are also important. The number of nodes involved, the size of the tumor in your chest, the presence of lymphoma in other organs, some blood test reports, and even your age are related to the type of treatment which works best.
