There are not any widely recommended lymphoma screening tests. It is because there has been no proven screening test to reduce the risk of dying from this disease. Even so, lymphoma can be found early in some cases. The only way to detect lymphoma early is to pay attention to signs and symptoms that might be present.
One of the most common symptoms is the enlargement of one or more lymph nodes which causes a lump or bump under the skin and is not painful. It is most common on the neck line, in the mouth, or in the groin. Many signs can include fatigue, chills, night sweats, weight loss, feeling exhausted and abdominal swelling. These symptoms are caused by anything other than lymphoma, but it is important that a doctor monitors them especially if the symptoms are persistent or get worse.
For people with known risk factors, careful and regular medical check-ups are important. These people often do not get lymphoma but they and their doctors should be aware of possible lymphoma symptoms and signs.
