Many people think that their body resistance is high, and think that malignant tumors such as lymphoma are still far away from us. In fact, in recent years, the incidence of lymphoma has gradually increased, and more and more people are facing lymphatic The prevalence of tumors, especially for older people, the incidence of lymphoma is relatively high. Once discovered, it is often advanced, which will threaten the life and health of patients. Therefore, the prevention of lymphoma is also very important. Necessary.

1. How to detect lymphoma early?

Lymphadenopathy is the most intuitive manifestation

Lymphoma is a malignant tumor that originates in the lymphatic hematopoietic system. Because lymphatic tissue is distributed in various parts of the body (except nails and hair), lymphoma can affect all tissues and organs of the body. The main manifestation of lymphoma is lymphadenopathy. If the superficial lymphadenopathy is enlarged and the mass is felt in the neck, axilla, groin, etc., beware of lymphoma.

It should be noted that lymphoma is not necessarily a lymphoma if you feel it. Sometimes reactive hyperplasia, tuberculosis and other conditions can also cause lymphadenopathy. If the lymph node is swollen due to lymphoma, the lymph node is relatively large and round to the touch, with a diameter of 1 cm or more, and the hardness is similar to the hardness of the nose, and there is no pain. Lymphadenopathy caused by benign disease is smaller, softer, and painful. Therefore, you should not worry too much about swollen lymph nodes or ignore them. You should go to the hospital in time.

Second, these symptoms should also be careful, or related to lymphoma

However, lymphoma is a kind of malignant tumor, which is not only manifested as superficial lymphadenopathy. When lymphoma invades different organs or tissues, it may cause different manifestations:

When lymphomas invade deep lymph nodes, often due to cough, shortness of breath, and cannot lie supine, a chest CT scan shows mediastinal masses and hilar lymphadenopathy. Or because of abdominal pain, CT scan of the abdomen shows swollen retroperitoneal lymph nodes.

In addition, if systemic lesions occur, such as cough and sputum, space occupying lesions are found in the lungs, sometimes in addition to lung cancer, some are lymphoma; belching, acid reflux, stomach upset, in addition to gastric cancer, it can also be lymphoma ; Abdominal pain, black stools, CT found thickened intestinal wall, but also highly suspected lymphoma.

There is also an unexplained fever. If you have ruled out infection and autoimmune diseases, you need to consider lymphoma.

There may also be some skin diseases, such as unexplained skin itching, which may be a symptom of Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Subcutaneous nodules and incurable skin ulcers require related biopsies to determine whether they are lymphomas.

Lymphoma is a malignant tumor, and its manifestations are ever-changing. Many phenomena may lead to the deterioration of lymphoma. At present, there are no good inspection measures. Therefore, you must always pay attention to your physical health. , You must go to the hospital for examination in a timely manner, but also to improve your own resistance and strengthen the ability to resist cancer cells.
