In brief: Yes

Cancers in teenagers are rare, but hodgkin lymphoma does happen in this population.
It is curable in the majority of the patients. There have been some significant changes in the way we approach hodgkin lymphoma, especially in the early stages, in trying to prevent long term complications from treatments.
