TASTE fever, fatigue, lethargy, poor appetite and rapid weight loss may be common symptoms. However, a precautionary because it may be an early symptom of more serious diseases like blood cancer called lymphoma.
Lymphoma is a type of blood cancer that starts from cells of the immune system called lymphocytes. Like other cancers, lymphoma occurs when lymphocytes are in a state of uncontrolled cell growth and multiply.

Lymphocytes are white blood cells that flow throughout the body through a fluid called lymph. It is distributed by a network of channels that form the lymphatic system is part of the immune system. Lymphatic system (function against infection or harmful elements) also includes the lymph nodes that exist throughout the body to filter the lymph that flows through it. lymph nodes swell and become soft when a large number of microbial organisms trapped inside. This indicated the presence of infection. Abnormal lymphocytes accumulated in one or more lymph nodes or lymphatic tissue such as spleen or tonsils and eventually form a cluster of cells called a tumor. tumor growth and spread in the vicinity of tissues and organs, thus disrupt the supply of oxygen and
nutrients. If the abnormal lymphocytes move from the lymph nodes or in other organs, the cancer will spread. Consultant Internal Medicine Hematology & Oncology Prince Court Medical Centre (PCMC), Dr Abdul Aziz Baba, said in the case of lymphoma patients who switched to leukemia, the patient must understand that leukemia and lymphoma starts from the blood was from the lymph nodes. But there are also lymphoma, which began from the blood and is known as leukemia lymphoma but the situation is still not very clear. Dr Abdul Aziz said, leukemia or lymphoma will not show any symptoms at an early stage. However, as time went on he increasingly spread of leukemia and lymphoma can produce similar symptoms. "The patient will feel fatigue, night sweats, pain or swelling in the ribs, especially the left side, shortness of breath, rash or itchy skin. "Individuals are also experiencing swelling in the lymph nodes in the neck, under arms, stomach and groin, fever or unexplained infections, chest pain, stomach or unexplained bone and body weight fell sharply, "he told Health. He said that as now, many cases of lymphoma are unexplained causes. However, the nature and specific character could enhance the risk of this disease. Among the conditions that weaken the immune system, including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and HIV and AIDS. In addition, inherited immune disorders such as hypogammaglobulinemia or Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, and infections such as Epstein-Barr virus and organ transplantation involving drugs that weaken the immune system, age, race and gender. This includes individuals who have a family history of living with lymphoma and been undergoing treatment for other types of cancer in the past. However, not all people who have one of these risk factors will have lymphoma and lymphoma sufferers will experience all the risk factors specified. In general, there are two types of Hodgkin lymphoma is lymphoma (HL ) and Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Hodgkin lymphoma is a specific lymphoma with high recovery potential, while Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), which is more common when the lymphatic system produces abnormal lymphatics. Following are more than 30 sub-types of lymphoma, treatment and prognosis vary according to sub-types of blood cancer. According to statistics, in the United States (U.S.) each year an estimated 54.000 people diagnosed with NHL and 7,000 cases of HL. It is the most common blood cancer in the U.S. but the European Union (EU) saw over 50,000 cases of NHL each year. In terms of treatment, physicians will perform all inspections and tests before determining the extent of the disease and the nature of appropriate treatment. Among the treatments available are biologic therapy or immunotherapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, steroid therapy, radiation therapy, stem cell transplant and surgery. Interestingly, some patients with leukemia and lymphoma does not require treatment. There are also some patients who do not require immediate treatment but have to undergo therapy after a few years and there are some who need urgent treatment. All treatments are fully dependent on the criteria given patient, the extent of disease, lymphoma, and the health of patients at the time.
