Hodgkin’s lymphoma (also known as Hodgkin’s Disease) is one of the cancers found among 9/11 responders and survivors. Turley Hansen has represented claimants with Hodgkin’s lymphoma since cancer was added to the list of illnesses covered under the Zadroga Act.
Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a cancer that starts in white blood cells called lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are part of the immune system. It is not as common as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL).
In Hodgkin’s lymphoma, cells in the lymphatic system grow abnormally and may spread beyond the lymphatic system. As Hodgkin’s lymphoma progresses, it compromises your body’s ability to fight infection.
