FAQ: How does someone get Hodgkin’s lymphoma?

Hodgkin’s lymphoma’s exact cause is unclear but likely involves genetic, viral and immune system factors. Possible contributors include genetic predisposition, viral infections like Epstein-Barr, weakened immunity (e.g., HIV), age (15-40 and over 55) and exposure to certain chemicals. While some autoimmune diseases may increase risk, most with risk factors do not develop the disease, and many without known risk factors do.
