While usually there are no direct causes, factors that increase the risk of lymphoma include older, male, white, weakened immune system (from disease, medications, surgery or malnutrition), pesticide exposure, high fat diet.

Lymphoma is generally described as a cancer that strikes in your immune system first. Because of this, the list of potential symptoms is endless and the possibilities of mis-diagnosis are mind-boggling. Here is the short list of signs and symptoms: fever, sweating, fatigue, weight loss, painless swelling of lymph nodes (neck, underarms, groin or stomach), night sweats, rash, itchy skin, pain in chest, abdomen or bones for no known reason.
Treatment depends on how advanced the disease is when it's diagnosed, how fast it grows and whether it is found on both sides or your diaphragm (muscle layer between chest and abdomen. With slow growing early stage cancer, radiation directed at the cancer site and/or nearby lymph nodes is preferred. With a more aggressive or more advanced form of lymphoma, the treatment becomes more complex, including options for chemo, biological, radioactive biological and/or radiation therapies. As the extent of the lymphoma development increases, so do the combinations of therapies and the number of clinical trials.
