Shivers, fatigue and loss of appetite can be sign of lymphoma
FEEL as shivers, fatigue , lethargy , loss of appetite and loss weight may be the sign of a sudden common diseases. We must be careful, because it may be an early symptom of more serious diseases such as blood cancer called lymphoma.
Lymphoma is a type of blood cancer that begins in immune system cells called lymphocytes . Like other cancers, lymphoma occurs when lymphocytes are in a state of uncontrolled cell growth and multiply.
Individuals involved also have swelling in the lymph nodes in the neck, under the arms , abdomen and groin , fever or unexplained infections , chest pain , abdominal or bone unexplained and sudden weight loss . – Dr. Abdul Aziz Baba, Consultant Internal Medicine Hematology & Oncology , Prince Court Medical Centre
The lymphocytes are white blood cells that flow throughout the body through a fluid called lymph. It is distributed by a network of channels that make up the lymphatic system which is part of the immune system. The lymphatic system ( or elements works to fight infections that harm the body ) also includes the lymph nodes throughout the body that exists to screen lymph flow.
Lymph nodes swell and become tender when a large number of microbial organisms trapped inside. This shows that there is an infection. Abnormal lymphocytes accumulate in one or more lymph nodes or lymphatic tissue such as the spleen or tonsils and eventually form a cluster of cells called a tumor .
Tumor growth and spread in the area surrounding tissues and organs , thereby disrupting the supply of oxygen and nutrients. If abnormal lymphocytes move from the lymph nodes or other organs , the cancer will spread.
Consultant Internal Medicine Hematology & Oncology Prince Court Medical Centre ( PCMC ) , Dr Abdul Aziz Baba, said that in the case of lymphoma patients are turning to leukemia , the patient must understand that leukemia and lymphoma from blood nor of the lymph nodes. But there are also lymphoma from blood and it is known as lymphoma leukemia , but the situation is still not very clear.
Dr Abdul Aziz said , leukemia or lymphoma will not show any symptoms in the early stages . However , over time when it is increasingly spreading leukemia and lymphoma can produce symptoms that are very similar in appearance .
” Patients will feel fatigue , night sweats , pain or swelling under ribs, especially the left side , shortness of breath , rash or itchy skin.
” Individuals involved also experience swelling of the lymph nodes in the neck, under the arms , abdomen and groin , fever or unexplained infections , chest pain , abdominal or bone unexplained and sudden weight loss , ” he said to the punch.
He said that , until now , many cases of lymphoma remains unexplained causes.
However , the situation and the particular character can enhance the risk of disease. Among the conditions that weaken the immune system , including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and HIV and AIDS . In addition, inherited immune disorders such as hypogammaglobulinemia or Wiskott -Aldrich syndrome , and infections such as Epstein- Barr virus and organ transplantation involving drugs that weaken the immune system , age, race and gender.
This includes individuals who have a family history of people with lymphoma and had a treatment for other types of cancer in the past.
However , not all people who suffer from one of these risk factors will get lymphoma and lymphoma sufferers will experience all the risk factors mentioned .
Generally, there are two types of lymphoma , namely Hodgkin lymphoma ( HL ) and Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Hodgkin lymphoma is a type of specific lymphoma with high recovery potential and Non-Hodgkin lymphoma ( NHL ) , which is more common when the lymphatic system produces abnormal lymphatics . Following are more than 30 sub- types of lymphoma , treatment and prognosis varies based on the sub- type of blood cancer is .
According to statistics, in the United States ( U.S. ) per year is estimated to be 54,000 people are diagnosed with NHL and 7,000 cases of HL . It is the most common blood cancer in the U.S. but the European Union ( EU) saw more than 50,000 cases of NHL each year .
In terms of treatment , the physician will perform all inspections and tests before determining the extent of the disease and the type of treatment appropriate . Among the treatments available are biologic therapy or immunotherapy, chemotherapy , targeted therapy , steroid therapy , radiation therapy , stem cell transplantation and surgery .
Interestingly , some patients with leukemia and lymphoma do not require treatment. There are also some patients who do not require immediate treatment but need to undergo therapy after several years and some of which require immediate attention. All treatments given depend solely on the criteria of patients, stage of disease , type of lymphoma and the health of the patient at the time.
