Question: lymphoma symptoms?


 teriann - Fri Apr 27, 2007 7:56 pm

Hello,
I am a 46 yr old female, experiencing the following symptoms:
lump in neck area, maybe an inch long ?, just below jaw - almost feels attached to jaw, hard, but somewhat moveable
night sweats (just figured I was entering menopause - perhaps I am)
lower back pain on both sides of spine
tiredness
fullness feeling in stomach - weight gain - not loss!
very bloodshot eyes - daily...eye doctor says "optic nerve looks healthy, probably allergies or a tear duct issue"
anemia
bruise easily
blood drawn a couple of days ago for an incontinence procedure scheduled next week. Results not yet reported, but blood drawer commented on her difficulty to stop the bleeding from the poke - ask if I was a bleeder or taking aspirin on a regular basis
I don't know if any of these things are related, but????? Lots of cancer in my family. Should I be concerned?
Thank you,
teriann

User avatar Unfortunately, I cannot tell you this is not cancer. Lymphoma is possible. There are other things that can account for your symptoms as well, such as a fungal infection like valley fever or histoplasmosis depending on where you live.

I would recommend that you follow up with your doctor to be evaluated and discuss your symptoms.

Best wishes.
