No home test: I'm not aware of a home medical test for hodgkin's lymphoma but some of the symptoms can be night sweats, lymph node enlargement, weight loss, shortness of breath.
Dr. Brian Lawenda

None: The standard test to determine if someone has hodgkin lymphoma is a biopsy. The most common symptom is a lump in the lymph node areas of the body. As lymph node swelling can come from many causes, a biopsy is the only way to know for certain.
