Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma

Symptoms

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

Other non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma symptoms to watch for may include the following:

  • Unexplained fever
  • Night sweats
  • Constant fatigue
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Itchy skin
  • Reddened patches on the skin

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