5 f been itchy for 5 weeks all over body had a night sweat last night. First time ever no fever and eating well.. How can I check her for lymphoma?
Blood tests unremarkable apart from WCC of 15.4. Looked up symptoms lymphoma. Straight after started to feel itchy all over. Could this be anxiety?
Yes: One of the first things a physician learns is that he/she has some ability to make people experience or recover from symptoms by suggestion. Charlatans use this routinely. Your suggestibility is just being human and thoughtful. I have raised my WBC to 20k taking a cold shower. If the cells are normal and you feel basically well, relax and be glad for good health. ...Read more
28/f, itchy skin all over body, no rash. Scared it could be lymphoma. Read its a common symptom. No dry skin, not allergic reaction. No other problems?
Get checked by Docto: Itching is common among normal healthy people. Most often it is due to dry skin which is very common in colder winter months(home heat make sit much worse). It is not a common symptom or lymphoma. So you can get that out of your mind. Use some oily lotions daily and it should settle down. If it gets worse/persists despite well oiled skin, then get a medical check up from your doctor. ...Read more

May be unrelated: lymphoma in eye or orbit as with other sites is usually a result of systemic viral infection with organisms such as MMTV. It usually presents with enlarged nodes locally present or diffuse such as with chest and abdomen or grtoin and axilla. Swollen itchy ankle is mostly the sign of post phlebitis and unless skin pathology present there probably is no cutaneous lymphoma. ...Read more
