Brief Summary:
This clinical trial is studying how well surgery and/or combination chemotherapy with or without radiation therapy or observation only work in treating young patients with newly diagnosed stage I or stage II lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin disease (LPHD). Surgery may be an effective treatment for LPHD. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone, and cyclophosphamide, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to kill cancer cells. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) with or without radiation therapy may kill more cancer cells.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment (surgery, combination chemotherapy, radiotherapy)

COMBINATION CHEMOTHERAPY: Patients receive doxorubicin hydrochloride IV over 10-30 minutes and cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour on day 1, vincristine IV over 1 minute on days 1 and 8, and prednisone PO or IV two or three times daily on days 1-7. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 3 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients who achieve CR after 3 courses of therapy proceed to follow-up. Patients who do not achieve a CR proceed to involved-field radiotherapy.

IFRT: Beginning within 3 weeks after completion of combination chemotherapy, patients undergo IFRT once daily, 5 days a week for 2.8 weeks (14 treatments).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Failure-free Survival (FFS) [ Time Frame: At 5 years ]
    The time to a treatment (strategy) failure, where failure includes one of the following occurrences as a first event: disseminated disease (> Stage I/II) progression or recurrence at any time, local disease progression or recurrence anytime during or after treatment with AV-PC +/- IFRT, occurrence of a second malignant neoplasm, death from any cause.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Event-free Survival [ Time Frame: At 5 years ]
    Failure includes one of the following occurrences as a first event: relapse/progression or second malignancy from enrollment.

  2. Cure by Surgery Alone in Stage I Resected Patients [ Time Frame: At 2 years ]
    To estimate the proportion of Stage I patients (with a single involved lymph node that is totally resected) who can be cured with surgery alone.

  3. Cure by AV-PC x 3 or AV-PC x 3 + IFRT for Stage I Unresected, Stage I Resected Whose Disease Recurred, and Stage II Patients [ Time Frame: At 5 years ]
    To estimate the proportions of Stage I unresected, Stage I resected (whose disease has recurred after observation), and Stage II LPHD patients who can be cured with AV-PC x 3, with IFRT for those who are not in a CR after chemotherapy.

  4. Grade 3 or 4 Toxicity [ Time Frame: Any time during chemoradiotherapy, up to the end of 3-cycles of AV-PC induction. Each cycle is 21 days. ]
