stage III childhood Hodgkin lymphoma
Stage III is divided into stages III, IIIE, IIIS, and IIIE+S. In stage III, cancer is found in lymph node groups on both sides of the diaphragm (the thin muscle below the lungs and heart that separates the chest from the abdomen). In stage IIIE, cancer is found in lymph node groups on both sides of the diaphragm and has spread from one of these lymph nodes to a nearby organ or tissue that is not part of the lymph system. In stage IIIS, cancer is found in lymph node groups on both sides of the diaphragm and in the spleen. In stage IIIE+S, cancer is found in lymph node groups on both sides of the diaphragm and in the spleen, and has spread from one of these lymph node groups to a nearby organ or tissue that is not part of the lymph system.
