  • abdominal pain
  • bone pain
  • chills
  • enlarged liver or spleen
  • enlarged lymph nodes
  • fatigue

  • unexplained fever
  • weight loss
  • Other symptoms can be related to the size and location of the Hodgkin's masses, for example:

  • unusual skin rashes
  • Hodgkin's lymphoma may cause pericarditis, or inflammation of the heart lining. It may also cause obstructions in large blood vessels, especially those in the chest. The bone marrow is usually not involved. If it is, it can cause anemia and other low blood cell counts. Viral infections, including herpes zoster, can occur.
