Hodgkin's Lymphoma Symptoms

Symptoms of Hodgkin's lymphoma vary from person to person. If you have symptoms, they may include:

  • Painless swelling of lymph nodes (often in the neck or under the arm, also in upper chest, abdomen or groin)
  • Fever or chills
  • Heavy night sweats
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Tiredness or lack of energy
  • Itchy skin
  • Enlargement of the liver or spleen
  • Cough and shortness of breath or chest discomfort

These symptoms do not always mean you have Hodgkin’s lymphoma. However, it is important to discuss any signs with your doctor, since they may signal other health problems.
