Default 1 question in FA related to NHL

Hi, I'm going through FA rapid review p.527.

The diagnosis for "A 10yr boy presents with B symptoms. Examinations shows an ant. mediastinal mass" is stated NHL. However, Hodgkin lymphoma seems to be a more reasonable answer for this one regarding his age and symptoms. Can anyone explain why the answer is NHL?

HL rarely has extra-lymphatic spread, that's y the prognosis of HL is better when compared to NHL
