Hodgkin's Disease is one of a group of cancers called "lymphomas." Lymph tissue is part of the body's immune system, which sends out white blood cells and antibodies to fight infection. Lymphoma refers to cancers that develop in the lymphatic system. In Hodgkin's disease, cells in the lymphatic system become abnormal. The disease usually spreads from the lymph nodes in the neck, chest, and armpits to the spleen, and then to the liver or nodes bordering the aorta.
