hi there, painless generelized lymphadenopathy with night sweats, and fatigue are quite suggestive of lymphoma, you will need to get a total thorough physical check up done by your physician then a battery of blood tests like a CBC including a peripheral blood picture done along with other tests like FNAC of the lymph node, an ultrasound abdomen and and chest x-ray. If these tests give any suggestion of lymphoma then they will need to do a lymph node biopsy and a bone marrow exam as a next level of investigation. Do be well informed about this condition and see to it that you are given a methodical and thorough exam to confirm or to establish a diagnosis. Take care.
