Overview

Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is a cancer of the lymphatic system and accounts for 12% of all lymphoma cases in Malaysia. The estimated age-standardized mortality rate of HL in this country is 0.23 per 100,000, which is higher than that of Singapore and Thailand. The disease is curable in most patients (ie, the 5-year relative survival rate of patients diagnosed at stages I and II of the disease >90%), but survivors may develop late treatment-related adverse effects. This online CPD video presents the clinical features of HL, along with an overview of its staging and prognosis. It also provides general practitioners/family physicians with information on the early signs and symptoms of the disease, and highlights the importance of early referral and intervention to maximize patient outcomes.
