In brief: Low

Your symptoms do not raise lymphoma as a very high probability.
Even w/ many - they have other causes too. Consider CBT pscyhotherapy to learn how to deal w/ medical anxiety. It's not easy to find balance between ignoring symptoms and being captive to them. But it is possible and will help. Here's some info: http://lymphoma.about.com/od/symptoms/tp/warningsigns.htm Have an exam and relax.

In brief: Probably not

Within normal CBC and negative CT scans, lymphoma is fairly unlikely.
However, there is a long list of other conditions that can cause night sweats including anxiety,over treatment of hypothyroidism, infections, and many medications including pain medication and antidepressants which can affect your thermoregulatory center. If not medication induced & continues, see your doctor for further tests.
