What to Know About Treatment for Recurring Hodgkin’s Disease

If Hodgkin’s disease comes back after treatment, the cancer may still be cured. In many cases, it may respond to other chemotherapy drugs. Your doctor may call this salvage therapy. Your doctor may suggest high-dose chemotherapy, along with peripheral stem cell transplant to improve your long-term prognosis. This is intense and difficult treatment, but it can be very effective. So ask your doctor about all the potential benefits and risks.
