Answer

Patients with clinical stages IA or IIA classical Hodgkin lymphoma who do not have unfavorable factors (ie, bulky mediastinal or >10 cm disease, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate [ESR] >50 [or ESR >30 with B symptoms], more than three sites of involvement, extranodal disease) are categorized as having early-stage, low-risk disease.
