FAQ: How long does treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma last?
The duration of treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma can vary depending on several factors, including the state and subtype of the disease, the individual’s response to treatment and the specific treatment regimen prescribed by the healthcare team. Treatment typically consists of chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy and may last several months to over a year. In some cases, additional treatments or maintenance therapy may be needed.
The goal of treatment is to achieve complete remission and the duration is determined on a case-by-case basis. Patients should discuss their treatment plan and expected duration with their medical team.
