The goal of treatment is to kill the cancer cells and avoid serious complications related to either the cancer or its treatment.
The treatment and management of Hodgkin’s disease usually involves radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or both. Your doctor will recommend a treatment plan for your specific needs. In general, treatment options depend on the stage of the cancer, your symptoms, your age, and your overall health. If the cancer does not respond to chemotherapy or radiation, other treatment options may include bone marrow transplantation or peripheral stem cell transplantation.
