The most common early symptom of lymphoma is painless swelling of one or more lymph nodes, typically in your neck, armpits, or groin.
Other common symptoms of lymphoma include:
- unexplained weight loss
- sweating (often at night)
- lack of energy
Many of these symptoms may be related to other conditions. For example, it’s normal for your lymph nodes to become swollen or enlarged when you’re fighting off a viral or bacterial infection. But if they stay swollen for long periods or become enlarged for no apparent reason, it may be a sign of lymphoma.
Anyone with persistent symptoms should see a doctor.
