hi well come to Hcm.
Hodgkins is cancerous condition. It can recur and relapse as well. thats why
doctors are asking for regular follw up and repeated reports. Though 5yrs of
cure is pretty long time usually after 5yrs of period for any cancers condition
chances of recurece are less.But it can. thanks
