Symptoms of Hodgkins Disease
Hodgkins disease does not usually cause pain. As the disease develops, the following symptoms may occur:
- Painless swelling of the lymph nodes, especially in the neck, collarbone, armpit, or groin—any swelling that lasts more than two weeks should be examined by your doctor.
- Persistent fatigue
- Unexplained fever
- Night sweating
- Weight loss
- Itching especially after a shower or exposure to heat
- Decreased appetite
