Answer

In Europe and other developed countries, the incidence parallels US data. [24, 25] United Kingdom data from 2015 show a crude incidence rate of 3.3 cases per 100,000 population (3.8 cases per 100,000 males and 2.8 cases per 100,000 females). Since the early 1990s, incidence rates of Hodgkin lymphoma in the UK have risen 35%. [26]
