Should I talk to my doctor about my AIDS-related lymphoma symptoms?

You should see your doctor if you experience night sweats, unexplained fever or weight loss, unusual tiredness, or painless swelling of the lymph nodes in the groin, neck, chest, or underarm; a full feeling below the ribs may also be a concern. In HIV-positive people, these can signal non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a common type of AIDS-related lymphoma.

One particular type of AIDS-related non-Hodgkin lymphoma is primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma. See your doctor if you experience headaches, nausea and vomiting, limb weakness, vision or hearing problems, confusion, or loss of memory, as these can all be signs of this type of cancer.
