Anyone dealt with Lymphoma?
Not necessarily the hypochondriac type, but I’ve been dealing with health symptoms over the past few months and from what I’m reading, this seems to mimic early stages of Lymphoma.

I’ve had a persistent itch for the past year. Arms, body, etc. I’ve dealt with allergies forever, so just chalked it up to that. Taking an antihistamine daily to combat it, but it hasn’t gone away. A couple instances of night sweats as well but nothing regularly. A week or so ago I developed a grape-sized lymph node on the right side of my jawline and this has made me pretty uneasy. Other than minor fatigue, I feel fine. No weight loss, appetite is good, etc. I should’ve stayed the frick off of WebMD because I’m starting to panic. Going to see my doctor tomorrow.

Any words of wisdom here?

There are tests that can figure out what is wrong with you

I doubt very, very seriously you have lymphoma. Could be any number of minor causes

I typed your symptoms into the thing up here and it says you could have network connectivity problems


try not to panic though... easier said than done, but hopefully tomorrow your doc will give you some peace of mind

I’ve had these at least the size of grapes every time I get a sore throat or fight off any kind of sinus infection …for over 30 years now. That’s just how some of us respond to infections.

Stop trying to self diagnose using the internet.

I have a family member dealing with something similar. Based on their experience I'll say that if you're having night sweats and you've developed a lump, then I'd go see a doctor as soon as possible.

Similar to you they felt fine, but started developing frequent night sweats and then it started with a lump on their head. May be nothing, but if it is than getting to it early seems to be key.

I did almost the exact thing you are doing, 20 years ago. Went to the doc, he felt the lymph node under my jaw, looked me dead in the eyes and told me no cancer. I’ve been fine ever since.

Go see a doc and get some medical marijuana to chill baw.

Get to a doctor. Don't wait for it to get better. Time could make it worse.

The itch is what’s worrying me the most. Made the mistake of reading Lymphoma testimonials and that’s the commonality in every story. I just want to live to see Ole Miss fall apart and finish 7-6, man.

Geez, go see a doctor and stop diagnosing yourself. You have no clue and nothing you said seems deeply concerning other than you being paranoid. Stop googling your symptoms.


The lumps could be cysts, the rest could be dry skin or other nutrients lacking in your diet.

Sarcoidosis can mimic lymphoma even on pet scans. Something you need to discuss with a doctor.

Go to doctor immediately and press and go to more doctors until you get a diagnosis. Go to a blood cancer specialist.

I was sick for almost four months, literally dying, and went through 5 doctors, and a bunch of useless Rxes before being diagnosed with stage iv Hodgkins.

I finished my 6-month chemo course over four years ago. It sucked but way better than being sick and dying. Don't wait another day. And get second, third and fourth opinions. I can't tell you the BS i went through just to diagnose a well/long-known disease.

Sarcoidosis


That was thrown about for me prior to Hodgkin's diagnosis. Apparently it's a lot more common in black people.
