b. Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a disease of the lymphatic system. The cause of this disease is not completely understood. Explain, in this case, how this disease develops.
For lymphoedema and Hodgkin’s lymphoma, state which part of the lymphatic system is affected. Then explain how this part of the lymphatic system will not be working as well as it should and how this will affect the patient

Hodgkin lymphoma develops when a lymphocyte (usually a B-cell) becomes abnormal (cancerous). These abnormal cells are called Reed-Sternberg (R-S) cells. Most people with Hodgkin lymphoma have R-S cells, although other abnormal cell types may be present. Reed-Sternberg cells continually divide, making more and more abnormal cells, which do not die when they should. As these abnormal cells build up, they can form a mass of tissue called a tumor.

Hodgkin lymphoma usually starts in the lymph nodes. Since lymph tissues are connected, cancerous lymphocytes circulate throughout the lymphatic vessels. Hodgkin lymphoma often spreads from one lymph node to another and can also spread to organs outside the lymph system.

There's lots of info online =)
