Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Symptoms

Generally, early in the evolution of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, it is characterized by a painless enlargement of lymph nodes. These swollen lymph nodes sometimes regress spontaneously to reappear later.

Most common symptoms of non-Hodgkin lymphoma tend to appear in the organs containing lymphoid tissue: neck, armpit or groin areas. As the disease progresses, however, it can reach all parts of the body. This makes non-Hodgkin lymphoma a multi symptomatic disease. In addition to swollen lymph nodes, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma can cause the following conditions:

  • fever
  • fatigue
  • anemia
  • nightime sweat
  • itchy skin
  • weight loss
  • increased risk of infection
  • abdominal pain or swelling
  • Chest pain, often associated with coughing or trouble breathing.
