Did you know?
Both children and adults can get Hodgkin disease but it is most common in 2 age groups: early adulthood (ages 15 to 40, especially in a person’s 20s) and late adulthood (after age 55). About 10% to 15% of all cases are found in children and teens.
People with weakened immune systems, such as those suffering from HIV or mononucleosis, have a higher risk of getting Hodgkin disease.
People who have a sibling suffering from Hodgkin disease have a higher risk of contracting the disease.
The most common early sign of Hodgkin lymphoma is painless swelling of one or more lymph nodes.
