Your Source for Pediatric Hodgkin Lymphoma Care in NJ

Hodgkin Lymphoma is a type of cancer that affects children differently than it does in adults. This form of pediatric cancer makes up 6 percent of childhood cancers, and is most common in children from 15 to 19 years old. Approximately 90 percent to 95 percent of children with Hodgkin lymphoma can be cured, the American Brain Tumor Association reports.

Types of Hodgkin lymphoma include:

  • Classic Hodgkin lymphoma. This type of childhood cancer accounts for about 95 percent of all cases of Hodgkin lymphomas. It affects Reed-Sternberg cells, which are an abnormal type of B lymphocyte. There are four subtypes of the disease: Nodular sclerosis Hodgkin lymphoma, which is most common; mixed cellularity Hodgkin lymphoma; lymphocyte-rich Hodgkin lymphoma; and lymphocyte-depleted Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • Nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin lymphoma. This is a less typical form of Hodgkin lymphoma, and it affects popcorn cells, which are different kinds of Reed-Sternberg cells. It usually originates in neck and underarm lymph nodes.
