Lymphomas are cancers of the lymphoid system, which includes the lymph nodes, bone marrow, spleen and thymus. Lymphomas arise from a type of white blood cell called lymphocytes. Hodgkin lymphoma is a form of lymphoma that is notable for large cells with multiple nuclei, called Reed-Sternberg cells. About 10 percent of lymphomas are of the Hodgkin type; the others are called non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Hodgkin lymphoma is most commonly diagnosed in the teenage years, from 15-19, and it is the most common cancer of teenagers and young adults.

Approximately 1,200 children and adolescents are diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma each year in the U.S. There is also a smaller group of older adults diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, with incidence slowly increasing after 55 years old.
