Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma – Did You Know?

  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma starts in cells called lymphocytes, which are part of the body’s immune system. Symptoms may vary depending on the type of lymphoma and location in the body. A few common signs include enlarged lymph nodes (lumps under the skin), chills, weight loss, fatigue, swollen belly, feeling full after a small meal, chest pain or pressure, shortness of breath or cough, severe or frequent infections and easy bruising or bleeding.1

  • Risk factors associated with non-Hodgkin lymphoma include radiation exposure, having a weakened immune system, autoimmune diseases, certain infections, family history and age.2

  • Connecting with other people that have non-Hodgkin lymphoma through an online or in person support group, online chat and/or one-to-one matching can help you learn about your condition and provide you with support.
