Lymphoma Symptoms

Lymphoma symptoms should always be investigated by a medical professional, as the signs commonly associated with this disease can be shared by a multitude of other medical conditions. The signs and symptoms of lymphoma also depend on the type, location, and severity of the cancer.

While some people who are diagnosed with lymphoma may experience many of the following symptoms, some may experience none at all. In general, lymphoma symptoms are the same in both children and adults, and include:

  • Enlarged lymph nodes in the abdomen, groin, neck, or underarms
  • Fever that cannot be explained by an infection or other illness
  • Coughing or problems breathing
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Sweating and chills
  • Fatigue
  • Itching
