Hodgkin's Disease


Hodgkin's disease affects the lymph glands. These glands are in many different parts of the body and are important in helping to fight infection. It is for this reason that glands in children's necks are often swollen and painful as they are constantly fighting infections in the ears, nose and throat. This swelling goes down when the infection clears.
