Hodgkin's lymphoma

What is Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?

Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a malignant lymphoid tissue tumor that originates from B cells in the lymph system. The condition is characterized by the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells, which are heterogeneous large B lymphocytes. Hodgkin’s lymphoma usually develops in the lymph nodes, but it can also be found in other lymphoid tissues and organs.

Hodgkin’s lymphoma is categorized into different subtypes, including classic Hodgkin’s lymphoma and mixed-cell Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Classic Hodgkin’s lymphoma is further categorized into the following four subtypes:

1. Mixed Cellularity: this is the most common subtype, containing multiple cell types.

2. Lymphocyte-rich: lymphocytes are the main cell type.

3. Nodular Sclerosis: characterized by fibrosis and mass lesions.

4. Lymphocyte-depleted: relatively few Reed-Sternberg cells, mainly fibrosis and lymphocytopenia.

So can middle and late-staged Hodgkin’s Lymphoma be cured? Minimally invasive techniques with few side effects and minimal trauma can help oral cancer patients avoid surgical removal, avoid suffering from traditional radiotherapy, and effectively prolong survival.

Hodgkin's lymphoma Traditional Treatment Methods

  • Surgical treatmentSurgery to remove cancerous tissue and clean cervical lymph nodes that may have metastasis.

  • chemotherapyOften used as palliative therapy for inoperable or distantly metastatic advanced cancer.

  • Chinese treatmentTraditional Chinese medicine therapy can inhibit the development of cancer, improve the immune function of patients with thyroid cancer, and reduce the toxic and side effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

Hodgkin's lymphoma Staging

Stages of Hodgkin Lymphoma

Hodgkin’s lymphoma is staged according to the Ann Arbor staging system, a system commonly used to describe the staging of lymphoma disease.The Ann Arbor staging system divides Hodgkin’s lymphoma into four main stages, as well as sub-stages within each main stage.

stage I: involvement of a single lymph node region or of a single extralymphatic organ or site


A: Absence of any B symptoms (e.g., fever, night sweats, weight loss).

B: presence of B symptoms

stage II: involvement of two or more lymph node regions on the same side of the diaphragm


 A: Absence of any B symptoms

B: presence of B symptoms

stage III: Lymphoma has spread to both sides of the diaphragm or to areas of lymph nodes outside the thoracic and abdominal cavities.


A: Absence of any B symptoms

B: presence of B symptoms

stage IV: diffuse or disseminated involvement of one or more extralymphatic organs, including any involvement of the liver, lungs, or bone marrow.


A: Absence of any B symptoms

B: presence of B symptoms

In the Ann Arbor staging system, B symptoms are fever, night sweats, and weight loss. The exact determination of staging requires a series of tests such as physical examination, imaging (e.g., CT scan, PET-CT scan), and lymph node biopsy.
