Lymphoma: Lymphoma is usually associated with swollen regional lymph nodes. Although night sweats can happen typically no other symptoms common. Common places for lymphoma include neck, mediastinum, abdomen, bones and some show up on the skin. Patient can get abdominal pain or pain in localized area.
