Screening for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
Screening is a method of finding out if you have a disease before you begin to have any symptoms.
There are no national screening guidelines for Hodgkin’s disease.
There are no screening tests specific for Hodgkin's disease. However, a routine physical exam by your health care provider may identify enlarged lymph nodes, which are an early sign of Hodgkin’s disease.
