Our pathologists use special molecular and genetic tests to learn more about the cancer you have. These details help us match you with the treatments that are most likely to offer you the best results. Find out more about cancer treatments.
Hodgkin lymphoma cancer treatment often includes:
- Chemotherapy or other medical treatments: Medicines (such as chemotherapy and targeted therapies) work in different ways to destroy cancer cells or stop them from growing.
- Radiation therapy: We use sophisticated technology to direct high-energy beams at cancer cells, destroying cancer while sparing healthy tissue.
A stem cell transplant can help doctors treat the most difficult cases of Hodgkin lymphoma. Your doctor may recommend this procedure if other treatments aren’t effective or if cancer comes back after successful treatment. Our cancer treatment team works closely with the stem cell transplant team to provide seamless care before and after transplant surgery.
In some people, Hodgkin lymphoma comes back in the weeks or years after successful treatment. Regular follow-up visits and testing help us monitor your health long-term. With this approach, we can detect a cancer recurrence in the earliest stages, when treatments are most effective.
