The abnormal lymphocytes may cluster together in your lymph nodes (glands), leading to lumps in your neck, armpit or groin. Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) can also mean your body finds it harder to fight infections. 

There are two main types of HL:

  • classical Hodgkin lymphoma - 95% of people have this type - and
  • nodular lymphocyte-predominant Hodgkin lymphoma (NLPHL).

This section has information about classical Hodgkin lymphoma.
