Suggest Treatment For Weakness And Body Itching In Case Of Lymphoma

My husband had 22 non cancerous tumors removed about 2 years ago. The doctor told him it was probably from a virus he had at some point and stayed in his system and changed causing his body to create these tumors. He was also told the tumors will most likely return and he has a 15% chance of having lymphoma. Recently my husband and I noticed tumors growing again mostly on his back. He has had other symptoms since they have returned. His tonsils have been swollen for about 4 months, he itches frequently all over his body, he sweats a lot at night and he is constantly tired and dehydrated. He is only 23 years old and we are concerned. We are working on getting insurance on him since we don't have any at the moment and was hoping you could give us an answer.
