If your Hodgkin lymphoma comes back, it may be possible to give more treatment with the aim of curing the disease.
Usually this will involve having chemotherapy or radiotherapy, a combination of both, or high-dose treatment with stem cell support. The treatment you are given if the lymphoma comes back will partly depend on what treatment you had initially and where in the body it has come back.
Even if it’s not possible to cure the lymphoma, treatment can be given to shrink the lymph nodes and control it. This can often keep you well for long periods of time.
