If lymph nodes were enlarged due to lymphoma how big would they be after a year? How fast do do they grow? Would there be sypmtoms after a year?

In brief: Good questions

There are different kinds of lymphoma with very different behaviors.
Some are terribly aggressive and the nodes can double in size in a few days whereas others are very indolent and may remain unchanged for months or years. Same applies for symptoms, the most common of which is just an enlarged node.

In brief: Yes

It isn't possible to say exactly how big they would be.
Lymph nodes involved by lymphoma usually grow progressively and would be significantly bigger after 1 year. Other signs and symptoms associated with lymphoma include unexplained weight loss, night sweats, lack of appetite, recurring fever, fatigue, enlarged liver and/or spleen, etc. Consulting your physician is recommended.
