Hodgkin’s disease and non Hodgkin’s lymphoma

Lymphomas are cancers of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is part of the body’s defence against infection – the ‘immune system’. It is made up of glands and tubes that are found in many parts of our bodies. Hodgkin’s disease and non Hodgkin’s lymphomas are types of lymphoma; they differ in behaviour and treatment. Lymphomas can affect both adults and children.

Helping those affected by lymphatic cancer

When you learn that you have a lymphoma, whether Hodgkin’s disease or non Hodgkin’s lymphoma, you may know little about it. In these circumstances, it is very natural to feel fear, anxiety, despair and a certain hopelessness. The more you know about something, the less afraid and anxious you are likely to be. We believe that knowledge conquers fear.

The Lymphoma Association provides information and emotional support to anyone with lymphatic cancer and to their families, carers and friends.
