Caption

Cancer patient. Hospital nurse swabs with disinfectant the chest catheter of an 18 year old male cancer patient. The patient is suffering Hodgkin's lymphoma. A Hickman catheter is used to administer drugs or to draw blood. The long chest scar seen, is from a biopsy operation. The patient has received anticancer treatment, with subsequent loss of his hair. Hodgkin's lymphoma is a rare cancer in the lymphoid tissue. As the disease progresses the immune system becomes impaired and the patient must be protected against infection. Treatment may include radio- therapy, cancer drugs, and bone marrow transplant.
