Hi.  I was diagnosed with Stage 4  hodgkin's lymphoma and  was treated with a chemo regement called stanford IV. I have been in remission for 8 years. Depending on your treatment (if your treated with radiation and staging) would determine the percent of risk of getting a second cancer some day.  Don't focus on that just focus on your treatment now. Good luck.
