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.
