Specializes in Pathology
See below...: Hodgkin lymphoma is a form of cancer that affects the lymph nodes. It usually occurs in a single lymph node or small group of lymph nodes in a particular location (armpit, neck, thorax, etc.). It may remain localized for a long time or extend to nearby organs or travel (metastasize) along the lymphatic system to other lymph nodes.
