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
  • Coughing
  • Unexplained fever
  • Night sweating
  • Weight loss
  • Itching especially after a shower or exposure to heat
  • Decreased appetite
