What are the symptoms of stage 1 non-Hodgkin lymphoma?

Like other types of non-Hodgkin lymphomas, stage 1 symptoms generally begin with a painless swelling of the affected lymphatic area (the neck, armpit, or groin). Alternately, you might feel a cough or shortness of breath caused by swollen lymph nodes in the chest pressing on the lungs. If the disease is advanced, a fever of unknown origin may be a symptom. Night sweats, unexplained weight loss, and fatigue are also symptoms associated with stage 1 non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
