Hodgkin lymphomas (HL) and Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas (NHL) represent 13% of total cancer diagnoses in the adolescent and young adult (AYA) population ages 15-39. Even though we continue to learn more and more about the general histological and molecular characteristics of NHL and HL, we are still lacking knowledge based on the unique biology of lymphomas in the AYA population as compared to the better understanding gained in the younger and older populations. To address psychosocial and treatment based issues in this age group it is important to examine the use of age-directed reviews of patients whether this is through retrospective or prospective studies.
