In brief: Yes
Hodgkin's disease is a type of lymphoma.
This cancer of the lymph nodes is very curable and is sensitive to chemotherapy and radiation. We use different combinations of treatment depending on the stage of the cancer. Occasionally after treatment there can be recurrences and more aggressive treatment is needed. Some people still die of the disease but over the decades cure is more likely.
