Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Complications  

Cancer cells can spread to other organs - especially the digestive tract, chest, lungs or skin - and cause severe complications. The nature and severity of the complications depend on the location of the lymphoma.  

For example, a lymphoma in the chest can cause facial swelling or accumulation of fluid in the lungs (pleural effusion); a lymphoma in the stomach or small intestine can lead to constipation or severe abdominal pain; if the cancer is localized in the groin, it can lead to swollen legs; if the lymphoma is located in the skin, it can cause thickening and dark discoloration of the skin.
