Hodgkin's and Heredity

As a Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor I have wondered for years what caused it. Was it exposure to something in India? Was I born with it? Heredity has been a big question and for years I have turned to a well written paper by the US National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). NCBI creates public databases, conducts research in computational biology, develops software tools for analyzing genome data, and disseminates biomedical information.

The NCBI paper discusses various research studies done in the field and what the data shows on heredity and Hodgkin's. It is a bit technical but you can generally get the meaning. They rewrite the paper periodically as new data comes forth.
