Following are some common Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Symptoms, which may help in early diagnosis if attended appropriately:
- Painless swelling of lymph nodes especially those in the neck, under the arm, or in the groin. Often these lymph nodes appear as a lump under the skin which gets bigger over time. Note that some other cancers and infections may also cause swollen lymph nodes.
- B Symptoms: Unexplained weight loss, Fever (>38 degree Celsius), and night sweats may occur in patients with HL.
- Fatigue and weakness.
- Loss of appetite.
- Itching on skin (due to a spread of cancer cells to the skin).
- Cough or chest pain (due to swollen lymph nodes in the chest pressing on the trachea).
