My muscles are getting weaker day by day. Is this the sign of lymphoma ?

I ve been sick for a few months now and over the past three years my body has gotten weak. At first I thought it was from quitting two of the three sports I play but then I noticed the sport I had continued wasn t help build or maintain my muscles. I ve continually lost weight from muscle loss and can no longer play sports. I ve lost the ability to run and I cannot even walk up a small flight or stairs. When I try to jog I black out and cannot see for a while. Something as simple as raising my arms make me sore . As well, I have developed four lumps at the bas of my skull. Each are near my lymphnodes yet they are irregularly placed and are hard protruding lumps like marbles. My throat is so swollen it hurts to breath and talk. What might this be? I am a previously highly athletic 16 year old female.

Hi , You said hard lymph nodes , they can be inflammatory also as you are having sore throat.Please do not neglect them and show them to a surgeon and go for basic investigations like blood counts , x ray chest etc.Do not jump to lymphoma without investigations.Take care
God bless you

Hi I have a question. Let me tell you my history. This past August I was diagnosed with stage 4 nhl all positive. At that time I needed a bag to drain the guild around my heart. I began chemo and was release without the bag when I start to get batter mid August. I finished chemo in December and declared cancer free. 2 days ago my chest started hurting, I think I pulled a muscle because it feels the same as when I was released back in August after they removed the bag. It hurts when I hold my breath and move but if I sit still it fine. Does it sound like a pulled muscle?

Im a 16 years old with swollen lymph nodes on the neck. Its 3 or more lymph nodes; the bigger one is about 2,3 cm and the smallest is less then 1 cm. One of them feel hard and unmovable(its not the big one). The others are movable but all of them are painless and hard to notice from the outside. I do get a stiff neck from time to time, it feel like the veins on my neck are going to explode. I went to the doctor because i had a cold (i found this swollen nodes 2nd day of the cold) he examined my whole body and said its common to have swollen lymph nodes when you get a cold or if you have a chronic sinus infection which i have since 4 years. I already had a swollen node before on the right side of my neck which was large and hard and painless a few years ago, it stayed swollen for a long time and went back to normal eventually. I dint have any symptoms such as: Night sweats , itching. I do feel so tired and i get needles feeling in my left hand and my left leg/feet is kind of heavy/numb and i lost my appetite maybe because im too anxieted about this symptoms, but i do sleep well. My doctor put me on Amoxicillin for 5 days (1500 mg each day) and an other Allergypills and he ordered a blood workout. Could this be cancer ? If not, please go in details..

Hi, got a painless lump on the bone behind left ear. Been there for about 6 months. I intended to have it checked out a few days after I found it, but I was in NZ at the time and didn t know how to sort out all the healthcare costs/ travel insurance (I m from the UK so get free healthcare), so I just left it to see how it developed. By the time I returned home about 3 months ago, the lump was still there but completely unchanged. As it hadn t developed at all, I thought nothing of it, even though I ve been kind of intending to get it checked. It s still unchanged from 6 months ago, but now I ve read some stuff about lymphona and I m really worried. Just wondering, does this seem likely if it hasn t changed at all in 6 months? Is there anything else it could be? For the record, I m 23 and male. Thanks
