Overview of Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Lymphoma is when the body starts making cells that are not needed in the lymphatic system. Hodgkin's lymphoma spreads in a predictable pattern and can spread to other organs in the body. These cancer cells only make up a small part of the cells in a cancerous lymph node.
