Symptoms, causes, prevention, and research.
There are many signs and symptoms of Hodgkin's disease such as: painless swelling of lymph nodes in your neck, armpits, or groin, persistent fatigue, fever and chills, night sweats, unexplained weight loss, loss of appetite, and itching. Doctors know that most Hodgkin's lymphoma occurs when an infection-fighting cell called a B cell develops a mutation in its DNA so they are not completely sure how this disease is caused. With Hodgkin's lymphoma there are no risk factors, you would not know if you have this disease or not unless it was passed down genetically, however you should get screening often just to make sure you do not have anything wrong. Important research into Hodgkin disease is going on in many university hospitals, medical centers, and other institutions around the world. Scientists are getting closer to finding out what causes the disease and how to improve treatment.
