Lymphoma Symptoms And Treatment

Brief Summary:

​Lymph nodes are called lymph nodes, and they play a vital role in the body's ability to fight viruses, bacteria, and other causes of disease. The lymph system consists of a network of organs, vessels, and lymph nodes located throughout the body. There are about 600 lymph nodes, most of which are located in the head and neck, and in the armpit and groin areas.
Lymph node lymph nodes are small, bean-shaped nodes, a capsule-shaped group of cells of connective tissue. These cells are a group of lymphocytes that produce protein and takeover molecules from microbes, such as viruses, and lymphocytes filter the body's circulating lymph fluid.
Lymph nodes are located in groups, and each group is specific to a specific area of your body. The enlargement is most often located in the neck, chin, armpits and groin area. The location of the swollen lymph nodes may also help determine the underlying cause.
Often, when the lymph nodes are swollen, they are inflamed as a result of infection. However, there are many possible causes of swollen lymph nodes, and treatment for swollen lymph nodes depends on the cause.

Lymphoma Symptoms:

Symptoms of lymphoma are similar between adults and children alike, but the most common symptoms that characterize the disease are:

  • Swollen lymph nodes in the body (may be accompanied by or without pain).
    • Feeling tired and exhausted.
    • fever and shivering;
    • Itch.
    • Night sweats.
    • Unexplained weight loss.

    Lymphoma Causes:

    The causes of lymphoma are still not clear.
    However, there are some factors that may increase the chance of developing the disease, such as:
    • genetics.
    •   immune diseases;
    •   Infection with some viruses such as Hepatitis virus and HIV
    •   Bacterial infection.
    • Exposure of the body to chemicals

    Lymphoma Diagnosis:

    The doctor takes the patient's medical history and performs a physical examination, asks about the way the swollen lymph nodes appeared, asks about other signs and symptoms, and checks the size of the tumor, temperature, tenderness and texture, the location of the enlargement and accompanying signs and symptoms that indicate the cause.
    In addition, the doctor may order lab tests to help confirm the diagnosis, including the following:

    blood tests:

    Depending on what the doctor expects is causing the enlargement, he or she may order some blood tests to confirm, including a red blood cell count (C.B.C), to detect any disorders or infections, such as: mononucleosis and leukemia.

    Chest X-ray or CT scan:

    Surveying the affected areas may help identify potential sources of infection or find tumors.

    Lymph node biopsy:

    If your doctor can't confirm the diagnosis, a lymph node biopsy or even a whole lymph node biopsy may be helpful.

    Lymphoma Treatment:

    Treatment depends on the type of cancer, how quickly it has spread, and the stage of diagnosis. It is important to determine the age and health of the patient. It may be radiotherapy, surgery, or chemotherapy.

    Prevention Of Lymphoma:

    The best way to prevent is to raise health awareness about the disease (the most important symptoms and signs of disease), which helps in diagnosing the condition early and then treating, and trying to stay away from the causes of this type of cancer such as avoiding exposure to chemicals and others.
