See your family doc: To get a second opinion, start with your family doctor or internist. He or she should be able to help you arrange for the second opinion.

Easy: Either ask you doctor for the names of 3 people or call the leukemia and lymphoma society in your area and ask for names of docs for a 2nd opinion...Definitely would do it if you are having some doubts.

Stanford: Hodgkin lymphoma is quite rare with only about 8000 cases a year in the US. There are experts in this disease at most of the large academic cancer centers. In your area Dr. Advani at Stanford is superb.
