Become an expert on your disease. Be able to verbalize it to your providers and don't take "no" for an answer when they tell you nothing's wrong. Keep going until you find someone who will listen.
Our team of experts is one of the few focused only on lymphoma. While most oncologists see only one or two Hodgkin's lymphoma patients a year, we treat hundreds annually, giving us a remarkable depth of experience and expertise.
At MD Anderson, you are cared for by a team of some of the nation's top authorities on lymphoma. They draw upon the latest and most-advanced treatments for all stages of Hodgkin's lymphoma, examining you carefully to determine the best approach and communicating every step of the way.

Whether you recently have been diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma or have battled the disease for years, we can help.
