Symptoms of Hodgkin disease may include:

  • fever
  • night sweats
  • unexplained weight loss
  • enlarged lymph nodes, usually felt as painless lumps under the skin in the neck, underarm or groin
  • itchy skin
  • tiredness
  • loss of appetite
  • coughing or trouble breathing (swollen lymph nodes in the chest can press on the windpipe).

Note about symptoms

Many conditions – including common childhood infections – can cause these symptoms, not just Hodgkin disease. If your child has any of these symptoms and you are concerned, talk to your child’s doctor.
