1. Sometimes, it’s possible for people to feel some pain in their lymph nodes after ingesting some alcohol.
2. If the lymphoma affects the lymphatic tissue near the abdomen, stomach or bowel, it’s possible that some fluid may build up and lead to swelling near the intestines, which may cause sensations of pain, abdominal pressure, indigestion and/or diarrhea.
3. An enlarged lymph node can sometimes cause other symptoms because of the pressing it causes against the vein (swelling of an arm or leg) or against the nerve (numbness, pain, or tingling in an arm or leg).
4. Some people may experience unexplained pain in the lower back. It’s believed that this can be caused because of the expanding lymph nodes pressing on nerves.
5. With the lymphoma progression and as cancerous lymphocytes spread beyond the lymphatic system, the body starts to lose its ability to fight infection. The effects of this can be confused with signs of tuberculosis, influenza, other cancers or other infections such as infectious mononucleosis.
