The symptoms of Hodgkin's lymphoma are painless swellings in the neck, armpit, and groin. Almost all people diagnosed have a swollen lymph node in their neck.


Answer by  Brida (102)

The enlargement of lymph nodes is usually a main symptom. However, there are many other warning signs to look out for. Weakness, shortness of breath, fever and night sweat are normally present at the beginning of Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Others like skin bleeding, joint and muscle pain, jaundice and the swelling of upper and lower extremities start showing at advanced stages.
