Symptoms of Hodgkin's Disease
Swollen lymph nodes, night sweats, and unexplained recurrent fevers are some of the signs and symptoms of Hodgkin's disease. However, these can also be symptoms of other conditions (such as the flu). If you are having these symptoms and they do not go away, be sure to see a doctor.
Hodgkin's disease symptoms 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
- Tiredness or fatigue.
The symptoms discussed in this article are not sure signs of Hodgkin's disease. In fact, they are actually most often caused by other, less serious conditions, such as the flu.
When symptoms like these persist, however, it is important to see a doctor so that any illness can be diagnosed and treated. Only a doctor can make a diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease.
Do not wait to feel pain; early Hodgkin's disease may not cause pain.
