What are the signs and symptoms of the disease?

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma may grow slowly and cause few problems besides enlarged lymph nodes. The lymph nodes can be very large and may feel firm or rubbery. However, they are usually not tender to the touch. Other symptoms include:

  • abdominal pain
  • bone pain
  • chills
  • easy bruising or abnormal bleeding
  • fatigue
  • night sweats
  • skin lesions
  • unexplained fevers
  • unusual infections
  • weight loss
  • A person with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma may develop anemia, or a low red blood cell count. The person may tire easily, have pale skin, and develop shortness of breath.
