The Lymphoma develops in the lymph nodes or glands which include spleen, thymus gland and bone marrow, Adenoids & Tonsils and Digestive Tract. Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymph nodes and lymphatic system. Once cancer cells develop in the lymphatic system, they can easily spread to other tissues and organs. It impacts a type of white blood cells known as lymphocytes. Lymphoma can occur at any age and is often treatable. The signs and symptoms of lymphoma are similar to those of viral diseases and the common cold. Some people may not have any symptoms, but may note a swelling of the lymph nodes. Though there no routine screenings for lymphoma, if a person has persistent symptoms, a doctor should be seen at the earliest.
What are the symptoms which may indicate Lymphoma?
There is no one reason which can directly indicate towards the development of Lymphoma. The cancer can only be detected in regular health check-ups and tests. However, following symptoms may be a warning sign:
- Drastic weight loss
- Shortness of breath
