Childhood Hodgkin's Disease

Childhood Hodgkin’s disease is a type of cancer that develops in the lymph system, thus reducing the immune system's ability to fight infection and disease.

Childhood Hodgkin’s disease rarely occurs in children under the age of five; is more common in adolescents; and constitutes about six percent of all childhood cancers. Fortunately, childhood Hodgkin’s disease is one of the most curable forms of cancer.
