FAQ: What are the stages of Hodgkin’s lymphoma?
Stage I: This stage is characterized by the presence of HL cells in a single lymph node region or in an organ situated outside the lymphatic system.
Stage II: In this stage, HL cells are found in two or more lymph node regions located either on the same side as the diaphragm, above it, below it or in a lymph node and adjacent organ outside the lymphatic system on the same side of the diaphragm.
Stage III: In this stage, HL cells are detected in lymph node regions on both sides of the diaphragm, either above or below it, potentially accompanied by some organ involvement outside the lymphatic system or affecting the spleen.
Stage IV: This stage represents the widespread presence of HL cells in organs outside the lymphatic system and their adjacent lymph nodes, or the presence of HL cells in a single organ along with distant lymph nodes.
