A morbid condition characterized by progressive anæmia and enlargement of the lymphatic glands; -- first described by Dr. Hodgkin, an English physician.
A type of cancer that affects the lymph nodes which are a part of our body's immune system. Hodgkin's disease is a type of lymphoma. This cancer occurs most frequently in young adults.
A cancer of the lymphatic system. It is a type of lymphoma. There are two main types of lymphoma: Hodgkin's disease and Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Hodgkin's Disease is often very successfully treated, even when it has spread from where it started.
A form of cancer marked by enlargement of the lymph nodes, enlargement of the spleen or liver, and anemia. I - J - K - L - M - N - O
A type of B-cell lymphoma that usually begins in the lymph nodes of the neck, axillae and chest. Diagnosis is often aided by the identification of characteristic tumor cells referred to as Reed-Sternberg cells. These are an unusual type of malignant B-cell. Hodgkin's lymphoma may be treated with radiation therapy if localized or with a four or more combination of chemotherapeutic drugs if widespread.
A form of cancer affecting the lymphatic system and other tissues that plays part in an individual's ability to fight infection.
(HOJ-kins dih-ZEEZ) Malignant form of lymphoma marked by progressive enlargement of the lymph nodes and spleen and sometimes of the liver
A type of lymphoma. Lymphomas are cancers that develop in the lymph system, part of the body's immune system. Lymphomas are divided into two general types: Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. The cancerous cells of each type of lymphoma have a different microscopic appearance and the treatment for each type of lymphoma is different.
A malignant disease of the lymph nodes characterized by painless enlargement of lymphatic tissues and the spleen. Symptoms often include fever, weight loss, anemia, and night sweats. Named for the doctor who first identified it.
a malignant disorder in which there is progressive (but painless) enlargement of lymph tissue followed by enlargement of the spleen and liver
A malignant disorder of lymph tissue ( lymphoma) that occurs mostly in individuals between the ages of 15 and 35. If detected early, it has a high remission rate. It is characterized by the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells. For more information see the Hodgkin's Disease Page.
rare form of cancer that affects the lymphatic system
A form of cancer that affects the lymph system. Hodgkin's disease generally occurs in adults, and can now be successfully treated in the majority of patients.
A cancer that affects the lymph nodes. See Lymphoma.
A type of lymphoma, a cancer in the lymphatic system; a rare disease, accounting for less than 1 percent of all cases of cancer in the US, and occurs most often in people between the ages of 15 and 34, and in people over age 55. Hodgkin's disease causes the cells in the lymphatic system to abnormally reproduce, eventually making the body less able to fight infection. Steady enlargement of lymph glands, spleen, and other lymphatic tissue occurs.
A malignant condition of the lymphoid tissues which results in the enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, and liver, and sometimes fever and weight loss.
A malignant disease of the lymph nodes (lymphoma)
A type of cancer that affects the lymphatic system and arises in a lymph node. Named for the doctor who first identified it.
A cancer of lymphoid tissue (found in lymph nodes and the spleen) that causes the lymph nodes to enlarge and function improperly; may cause illness, fever, loss of appetite, and weight loss.
a rare form of cancer triggered by the random, uncontrollable growth of cells in the lymphatic system
a progressive cancer of the lymphatic system characterized by the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells, enlarged lymph nodes and spleen, wasting, fever and anemia. The disease is treated with chemotherapy and radiation. See also non-Hodgkins lymphoma.
cancer of the lymphatic system; symptoms include enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen and liver, as well as progressive anemia.
A type of lymphoma, which is a cancer of the lymphatic system. See Hodgkin's disease section.
An often-curable type of cancer that affects the lymphatic system.
Copper scores have proved to be a particularly sensitive index in Hodgkin's disease.
A malignant disease of the lymphatic system that is characterized by painless enlargement of lymph nodes, the spleen, or other lymphatic tissue. It is sometimes accompanied by symptoms such as fever, weight loss, fatigue, and night sweats.
A malignant disorder of the lymph tissue (a lymphoma ) that occurs most often in males, ad most often in individuals between the ages of 15 and 35. It is characterized by progressive, painless enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, and general lymph tissue. When detected early, it has a high cure rate.
A lymphoma that most often occurs in young adults. Hodgkin's disease that does not respond to chemotherapy may be treated by an autologous marrow or blood stem cell transplant and less often by an allogeneic marrow or blood stem cell transplant.
One of the two major types of lymphomas that begin in the lymph nodes, organs and tissues of the lymphatic system. All other lymphomas are classified as Non-Hodgkin's Lymphomas.
A cancer of the immune system that is marked by the presence of a type of cell called the Reed Sternberg cell. Symptoms include the painless enlarged lymph nodes, spleen, or other immune tissue. Other symptoms include fever, weight loss, fatigue, or night sweats. Also called Hodgkin's lymphoma.

a progressive malignant cancer of the lymphatic system. Symptoms include lymphadenopathy. wasting, weakness, fever, itching, night sweats and anemia. Treatment may include radiation and chemotherapy.
Cancer of the lymphatic system and lymph nodes.
