Don't be Afraid to Seek a Second Opinion

Seeking a second opinion is an important part of the Hodgkin lymphoma treatment decision-making process. Nelia shares how her oncologist encouraged her to talk to another doctor before making a treatment decision – and how that ultimately shaped her experience with Hodgkin lymphoma.

Ask your doctor about recommended treatment options for Hodgkin lymphoma, including important information about safety and side effects, and download a Treatment Discussion Guide to access questions to ask your doctor here.

The stories featured on this page reflect each patient's own unique experience with Hodgkin lymphoma. Your individual experience may be different. Information shared in these videos is not intended to replace discussions with your doctor.

BIO

Nelia was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin lymphoma after months of seeking an answer for her main symptom – extreme itchiness. Balancing being a mother while managing her diagnosis and treatment was a challenge, but she learned to advocate for herself in partnership with her care team. Nelia is now in remission, engaged and at the time of filming, was excitedly awaiting the arrival of her third child.
