Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) or Hodgkin’s disease is an uncommon cancer of the lymphatic system, such as lymph nodes. The lymphatic system is made up of a network of vessels and glands that spread throughout the body. The vessels of lymphatic system known as lymphocytes carrying clear fluid known as lymph, contains lymphocytes (white blood cells that help combat infection).
