Few of the known risk factors for Hodgkin disease can be changed, so it is not possible to prevent most cases of the disease at this time.
Another risk factor for Hodgkin disease is infection with the Epstein-Barr virus (the cause of infectious mononucleosis, or mono), but there is no known way to prevent this infection.
