This type of cancer tends to spread in a fairly orderly way from one group of lymph nodes to the next group. For example, Hodgkin's disease that arises in the lymph nodes in the neck spreads first to the nodes above the collarbones, and then to the lymph nodes under the arms and within the chest. Eventually, it can spread to almost any other part of the body. (Source: excerpt from What You Need To Know About Hodgkin's Disease: NCI)

What You Need To Know About Hodgkin's Disease: NCI (Excerpt)

Patients treated for Hodgkin's disease have an increased chance of developing leukemia ; non-Hodgkin's lymphoma; and cancers of the colon, lung, bone, thyroid, and breast. Regular followup care ensures that patients are carefully monitored, any changes in health are discussed, and new or recurrent cancer can be detected and treated as soon as possible. Between followup appointments, people who have had Hodgkin's disease should report any health problems as soon as they appear.
