Answer

Information regarding the incidence and mortality of Hodgkin lymphoma in the United States can be found at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) database Website. The NCI reports that rates of new Hodgkin lymphoma cases have been falling on average 1.2% each year over the last 10 years. As of 2010-2014, the age-adjusted incidence is 2.6 cases per 100,000 population. Death rates have decreased slowly but steadily in recent decades, but were stable at 0.3 per 100,000 population over 2012-2014. [22]

Data are also collected by the American Cancer Society (ACS). The ACS estimates that 8500 new cases of Hodgkin lymphoma will be diagnosed in 2018, and 1050 deaths will occur. [23]
