WHAT ARE THE ASSOCIATED SIDE EFFECTS AND LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF EACH
OPTION?
Each treatment option can have potential risks you should be aware of. Side effects are often short-term and occur during
treatment, while some might not show up until long after treatment has ended. Such long-term effects may last after treatment is
over but resolve over time, while others may improve but remain permanent. It's important to know the potential short- and longterm
effects and understand how they will affect your present and future lifestyle. 12
WHAT ARE SOME RESOURCES I CAN USE TO UNDERSTAND MY DIAGNOSIS
AND TREATMENT OPTIONS?
You should speak with your care team, who can give you verified and appropriate resources for your specific Hodgkin lymphoma
diagnosis and potential treatment options. In addition, organizations such as the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the American
Cancer Society, and the American Society of Clinical Oncology's Cancer.Net also have vetted resources for patients. 13
HOW LONG WILL I NEED TO STAY ON MY TREATMENT?
The length of your Hodgkin lymphoma treatment is determined by a variety of factors, including the stage, the types of treatment
that are given, and your personal experience during treatment. Your oncologist and care team should help to set expectations
around the duration of your treatment. 14
WILL I BE IN THE HOSPITAL OR AN OUTPATIENT DURING MY TREATMENT?
Most often, treatment is given on an outpatient basis in a hospital or clinic. However, there may be times when your symptoms or
the side effects of treatment require a stay in the hospital. 15
WILL I BE ABLE TO WORK OR ATTEND SCHOOL DURING MY TREATMENT?
Having Hodgkin lymphoma does not necessarily mean you will need to stop working or attending school, but you may have to take
time off for appointments, treatments, or require extra rest. Partnering with your doctor and care team to make informed decisions
about your goals during treatment can help you feel more confident as you navigate your Hodgkin lymphoma experience.
WHAT KIND OF TESTING WILL BE DONE TO MONITOR MY HODGKIN LYMPHOMA
AND TREATMENT? HOW OFTEN WILL TESTING BE NEEDED?
When going through treatment for your Hodgkin lymphoma, you may get regular screenings through blood tests, X-rays, and other
imaging tests, such as positron emission tomography (PET) scans23
, bone scans24
, echocardiograms,25
and pulmonary function
tests (PFTs).26 These tests will help your oncologist determine the cadence of your screenings and if your treatment has slowed or
stopped your Hodgkin lymphoma. 4
