Steven Smith | A young man with Hodgkin's Disease, US
There is no benign (non-cancerous) form of Hodgkin's disease. The good news about Hodgkin's disease is that most people (92%) with this disease are cured. The bad news is that because so many people are living for a long time, we are learning about serious side effects that happen years after the treatment is over. In fact, 20 years after treatment, more people who had Hodgkin's disease die of side effects related to treatment than of recurrent Hodgkin's disease. Steven has fallen into the 8% bracket where chances of a cure are slim to none.
