Lymphoma

Symptoms

Symptoms of lymphoma may include the following:

  • A painless swelling in the lymph nodes in the neck, underarm, or groin
  • Unexplained recurrent fevers
  • Night sweats
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Itchy skin
  • Reddened patches on the skin

The most common symptom of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is a painless swelling of the lymph nodes in the neck, underarm, or groin.

When possible symptoms of lymphoma like these occur, they are not sure signs of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma or Hodgkin's disease. In most cases, these symptoms are actually caused by other, less serious conditions, such as the flu. When potential symptoms of lymphoma like these persist, however, it is important to see a doctor so that any illness can be diagnosed and treated. Only a doctor can make a diagnosis of lymphoma. Do not wait to feel pain; early lymphoma may not cause pain.
