The stage shows whether the lymphoma is in one area of your body (localised) or has spread to other areas.There are 4 stages for Hodgkin lymphoma.
Knowing the stage helps your doctor to decide what treatment you need.
This means there is Hodgkin lymphoma in either:
- 1 group of lymph nodes
- 1 body organ
Treatment for stage 1 Hodgkin lymphoma is usually 2 to 4 cycles of chemotherapy. You might also have radiotherapy.
