Symptoms of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma
Symptoms of non-Hodgkins lymphoma vary, depending on where the cancer is located. The first sign of non-Hodgkins lymphoma may be a painless lymph node swelling of the neck, underarm, or groin.Swelling may also occur in the soft tissues of the arm or leg if the lymphoma has developed outside of a lymph node and is blocking the lymphatic flow, as sometimes happens. If the lymphoma is present in an internal organ, such as the stomach or bowel, symptoms will relate to disruption of the organ’s function, such as gastric pain, abdominal pain, or intestinal obstruction.
