FAQ: What type of cancer is Hodgkin’s lymphoma?

Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a form of cancer that primarily affects the lymphatic system, specifically the lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are specialized cells responsible for producing antibodies that play a crucial role in defending the body against foreign invaders like viruses and bacteria. In the case of Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a particular type of mature B-cell becomes cancerous, transforming into Reed-Sternberg cells. These cells exhibit an abnormal growth pattern characterized by their unusually large size and having more than one nucleus.
