Diagnostic measures include imaging tests such as X-rays or CT scans, lymph node biopsy, blood tests, bone marrow biopsy, lung function tests and other. However, the associated side-effects of Hodgkin lymphoma include radiation which includes lung cancer, heart disease and breast cancer.
In non-hodgkin lymphoma, the cells called as lymphocytes are affected which function as the immune in the body. Simply, in non-hodgkin’s lymphoma, immune cells grow abnormally.
