They are features of lymphoma

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX

One of the symptom of lymphoma is nose bleeds due to involvement of bone marrow by lymphoma cells. More chances of anaemia and bruising are present.
Another clinical feature is itching all over the body. Exact reason is not known.

I would like to know the histological type of lymphoma and the present line of management.

Hope I answered your query.
If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish him speedy recovery
