The most common symptoms of Hodgkin's disease are:
- Painless swelling in the lymph nodes in the neck, underarm or groin
- Night sweats
- Weight loss
- Itching skin
These symptoms are not sure signs of cancer. They may also be caused by many common illnesses, such as the flu or other infections. It is important to see a doctor if any of these symptoms lasts longer than two weeks. Any illness should be diagnosed and treated as early as possible, and this is especially true of Hodgkin's disease.
