  • Health Information

The more you know about your health, the better prepared you are to make informed healthcare decisions. Our health library gives you the information you need to take charge of your health.

The purpose of screening is early diagnosis and treatment. Screening tests are usually administered to people without current symptoms, but who may be at high risk for certain diseases or conditions.

Routine physical exams by your doctor may identify early signs of Hodgkins disease before symptoms appear.

There are no national screening guidelines for Hodgkins disease.
