2. Weight loss
This is a symptom that is very common with all types of cancer, not only lymphoma. However, it is rarely an obvious symptom, and people often don’t realize there is something strange with their bodies until the loss of weight has been significant. Even if in some cases lymphoma can cause a certain level of loss of appetite, with the consequent loss of weight, even if the person’s eating habits remain as normal, they will lose weight at a relatively high pace.
This is because all types of malignant cancer consume a lot of energy from the body. The cells that constitute a tumor reproduce at an abnormally high rate and they live long past their due time, so they absorb big amounts of energy from your system. They are the morbid equivalent of a constant workout, so the effect of a malignant tumor very frequently decreases a person’s body weight.
