Thanks for writing to us.

I think you mean to say lymphoma. Generalized spread of lymphoma does cause aches and pain but the pain killers like motrin will only give relief for the time being. These do not stop the progression of the disease in any way.

Lymphomas can be treated with the help of Chemotherapy and the survival can be prolonged with appropriate treatment.

I encourage you to consult a doctor for both evaluation and proper investigations that are needed so that proper treatment can be instituted to you.

Regarding Massage, I would suggest you to consult your treating doctor, as there is controversy regarding massage in Lymphoma case. He would advise you better, as he has personally examined you.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful.

I will be available for your further follow up queries if any.
