Brief Answer:

Could be a sign of a serious illness

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

The symptoms you are experiencing could be a sign of a serious underlying disease such as leukaemia or lymphoma.

These should be excluded by a CBC test, bone marrow biopsy and physical examination of whole body lymph nodes. I would recommend that you refer to your doctor for a further testing.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care

Regards,
