In everyone's mind, cancer is an incurable disease, and lymphoma is certainly no exception. But what are the symptoms of lymphoma? What kind of disease is called lymphoma? I believe everyone wants to know that because cancer has a certain incubation period, it is best to understand the symptoms earlier and detect the disease in time. Let's take a look at the relevant information below.
Lymphoma is a type of malignant tumor, and it is a highly malignant tumor. The cure rate of advanced lymphoma is very low and the fatality rate is very high. The early symptoms of lymphoma are insidious and difficult to detect clinically. The main features are as follows:
1. The early sign of lymphoma is superficial lymph node enlargement, which is painless and progressive swelling of superficial lymph nodes. The main locations where swelling occurs are cervical, axillary or inguinal lymph nodes. Cervical lymph node enlargement accounts for 60 to 80%, axillary for 6 to 20%, and groin for 6 to 10%.
2. Itching is often a unique sign of Hodgkin's disease. It can vary from local to generalized itching. Generalized itching often occurs in the mediastinum or abdominal lesions.
3. Hodgkin's disease (lymphoreticular cell sarcoma) often presents with irregular fever as an early warning sign, accompanied by superficial lymphadenopathy. There is a kind of lymphatic malignant tumor that is soft in the early stage and can be moved without pain, so it should be paid attention to.
4. Symptoms of general malaise are accompanied by superficial lymph node enlargement in the early stage, and low-grade fever and fatigue can be seen.
In addition to the symptoms described above, there are of course other symptoms of lymphoma. For example, some patients may experience sweating and rash, or may suffer from body weight loss. So everyone should pay attention. If you feel really unwell, you should go to the hospital for examination in time. If you have any disease, you should also receive timely treatment.
