Lisa Giulino Roth, MD, assistant professor of Pediatrics in Medicine, Joan and Sanford I. Weill Department of Medicine, Weill Cornell Medicine/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, discusses treating adolescent and young adult patients with Hodgkin lymphoma.

It is a unique age range that is particularly relevant in Hodgkin lymphoma, where the peak age range is young adults, Roth explains. This population has unique medical and psychosocial needs that are relative to younger and pediatric patients as well as older patients with cancer.

There are differences in therapeutic approaches for patients in this age range, as well. Some patients may go into a pediatric oncologist's or adult oncologist's office and receive 2 very different treatments for the same disease, she adds.
