Symptoms of Hodgkin disease may include:
- night sweats
- unexplained weight loss
- enlarged lymph nodes, usually felt as painless lumps under the skin in the neck, underarm or groin
- itchy skin
- 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.
