Dr. Rosen describes common symptoms patients have when diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

Dr. Rosen:
In most instances, the individual will feel a lump. The lump is actually an enlarged lymph node. As the disease progresses, you may have fever, chills, or sweats. There may be a loss of appetite associated with weight loss. You may have increased fatigue. On rare instances, it will appear in the skin, and so you may see a blemish or a raised lump. There are other presentations that are less common, including abdominal discomfort or, on some occasions, bleeding.
