What is Hodgkin's Lymphoma?

Hodgkin's Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system, lymphocytes become damaged, they grow & multiply uncontrollably so that the lymph nodes become enlarged, forming painless lumps called tumours. As damaged lymphocytes replace normal ones, the immune system becomes less able to fight infection. It's what I have now, and what i will be rid of as a result of my chemotherapy treatments!
