Answer

Both the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) [4] and the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) [5] guidelines provide recommendations for the long-term follow-up of treated patients with Hodgkin lymphoma who are in complete remission. The NCCN recommends interim physical exams and blood tests every 3 to 6 months for 1 to 2 years and then every 6 to 12 months for the next 3 years and then annually. [4] ESMO suggests follow-up every 3 months for the first 6 months, and every 6 months until year 4, then annually. [5]
