Adult Hodgkin lymphoma is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the lymph system. According to the National Cancer Institute:
There are two main types of Hodgkin lymphoma: classical and nodular lymphocyte-predominant.
Age, gender, and Epstein-Barr infection can affect the risk of adult Hodgkin lymphoma.
Signs of adult Hodgkin lymphoma include swollen lymph nodes, fever, night sweats, and weight loss.
Tests that examine the lymph nodes are used to detect (find) and diagnose adult Hodgkin lymphoma.
Certain factors affect prognosis (chance of recovery) and treatment options.
