In brief: Depends

If you trust the initial medical opinion, no need for second opinion.
For peace of mind, a second opinion will be advisable.

In brief: Depends on the stage

For patients with advanced stage Hodgkin lymphoma a second opinion doesn't usually add a lot.
For patients with limited stage Hodgkin lymphoma especially if radiation treatment is being considered in a younger patient a second opinion is advisable.

In brief: Only those that

Do not trust their first opinion, or need to be reassured that there is not another way *need* second opinions, but it is never wrong to get a second opinion.
Some opinions may differ, but that allows you to ask questions and make choices. Some differences are superficial. You get to choose substance and style.
