Hodgkin's disease, or Hodgkin's lymphoma, is a malignant (cancerous) tumour (neoplasm) that develops in the lymphoreticular system. There are four histological forms of the disease each with a different prognosis and level of aggression. In this form lymphocytes make up the bulk of tissue in affected nodes and relatively few Reed-Sternberg (popcorn) cells are present. It is associated with the best prognosis if diagnosed at an early stage.
