FAQ: What is the difference between lymphoma and Hodgkin’s lymphoma?

Lymphoma is a general term for cancers that affect the lymphatic system. Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL) is a specific subtype of lymphoma, distinguished by the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) encompasses various other lymphatic cancers that do not have Reed-Sternberg cells. These two types differ in terms of their cell characteristics, behavior and treatment approaches.
