Non-Hodgkin lymphoma may not cause symptoms right away. Slow-growing lymphomas, also called indolent lymphomas, may not have symptoms until they grow very large. When lymphoma does cause symptoms, they can often seem like other health problems at first. This is because non-Hodgkin lymphoma can cause many different types of symptoms. It depends on where it starts in your body.
Here are some common symptoms of lymphoma:
Swollen, painless lymph nodes in the neck, groin, underarm, or above the collarbone
Feeling very tired
Swelling in the belly or abdomen
Feeling full after eating only a small amount
Upset stomach (nausea), vomiting, or stomach pain
Coughing or trouble breathing
Swelling in your head and arms (superior vena cava syndrome)
Trouble thinking or moving parts of your body
Itchy, red or purple lumps under the skin
Infections that come back
These symptoms may also occur. They are known as B symptoms:
Abnormal sweating, especially at night
Losing weight without trying
B symptoms can mean that the cancer is more likely to grow quickly. If you have B symptoms, you may have different kinds of treatment.
Many of these symptoms may be caused by other health problems. But it’s important to see your healthcare provider if you have these symptoms. Only a healthcare provider can tell if you have cancer.
