Hodgkins and Non-Hodgkins

Hi Can anyone tell me the difference between non-hodgkins and hodgkins diseases please? A lady came to me today for a massage and I'm sure she said she had the "non" version but actually, I didn't know the difference anyway - I was quite surprised that she said she was happy to wait until I'd heard back from her doctor/consultant before going ahead with a massage as often, clients don't understand and WANT A MASSAGE NOW....and don't understand the situation we're in. Also....has anyone had any experience in massaging people with either??

Hello I could recommend an excellent website called Cancerbackup. The web address is:http://www.cancerbacup.org.uk/Home It explains all about different cancers. There is a section on ther about Hodgkins and Non-Hodgkins Lympomas. Hope this helps. Take Care Geraldine X

hello i work in a cancer hospital and just wanted to suggest that you check out your insurance regarding clients who have cancer. i am insured thru' IGPP/ Embody and when i checked with them before starting working in this area they said i am insured at the hospital but not when "treating cancer patients in a non-cancer care setting" ie in private practice. hope this is useful advice even if it may mean turning some clients away all the best rossignol
