Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Signs and Symptoms

Symptoms of Hodgkin's lymphoma may include the following:

  • A painless swelling in the lymph nodes in the neck, underarm or groin
  • Unexplained recurrent fevers
  • Night sweats
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Itchy skin

However, these symptoms are not sure signs of Hodgkin's lymphoma. In most cases, they are caused by other, less serious conditions such as the flu. That said, when symptoms like these persist, it is important to see a doctor so that any illness can be diagnosed and treated. Only a doctor can diagnose Hodgkin's lymphoma.
