Does any one have any information on hodgkins disease? I have been looking for any information I can possibly find. My cousin recently had a ct scan and they found fluid around his heart and growths on his lymph nodes. They haven't yet told him that they believe it's lymphoma. This is after months of excruciating tests to try to find the cause of his problems.

Any info would be great help!
I'd love to hear anyones opinions questions or advice.
Thank you all
<3 Amanda

  • Yeah, i have Hodgkins lymphoma, well it is quite hard to find out, but a good chances for futher advantages. It is cured on 90%. While lymphoma is not so "good", u see docs can not stop cells growing in it, i met pal who had several radiotherapies and still docs can not cut of the tumour :( . Chemotherapy is a torture; i've done only half of it and now have a break, hope that they will not do that again.

  • Hey I spent the last year doing chemo and radiation treatments for hodgkin's lymphoma. I'm 100% in remission since March 18th 2009. If you have any questions/concerns or anything you can email me and I'll answer whatever you'd like. lenorlives1234@aol.comI was totally alone and had no one to talk to about it so if I could help anyone with their stress/concerns I would love to be of service : )
