Telling Signs of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Wednesday, 23 Feb 2011 11:58 AM

Lymphoma is a cancerous disease that affects the lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are glands that house the white blood cells. They act as filters that trap foreign particles. The most common forms of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma are Follicular and B Cell Lymphoma. There are a number of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer symptoms. These signs are easily distinguishable and assure early diagnosis of the disease.

The following are telling signs of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma:
1. Fever and Sweats: This is one of the first Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma symptoms. Fever is a very common symptom in Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as the body is essentially fighting itself, as Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is an autoimmune disease.
2. Swelling and Pain: As the tumors in the lymph nodes grow, pain and swelling may be experienced in regions consisting of lymph nodes, e.g., the underarms and spleen region
3. Weight Loss and Fatigue: One of the predominant telling signs of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, weight loss, may occur rapidly.
4. Breathing Difficulty
5. Skin Disorders: Symptoms of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma may include itchy and flaky skin, which may, in extreme cases, bleed.
