Recent Hodgkins Diagnosis

Hi,

I am very familiar with the message boards here as I have recently been diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer and have received so much useful information and direction from many posts and very knowledgeable members.

I am reaching out now because my 31 year old son, Robbie has just been diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease. It is a huge blow.

He just received word today and I am doing some research for him.

His only outward symptom is swollen lymph nodes on his neck. These were biopsied. No scans were performed as of yet but will be soon.

Is there any recent advances in Hodgkin's Disease treatment that might not be mainstream yet? Are there any Centers that specialize in Hodgkin's Disease that can provide superior treatment? Any essential books to read? Any general advice?


Many thanks in advance for any answers to these questions,

Michael
