In brief: Differs
Different types of lymphoma have different symptoms.
The more aggressive types frequently have symptoms such as fevers, night sweats, and unexplained weight loss. Tb (tuberculosis) is one infectious disease that can have similar symptoms, but frequently with cough. Other cancers also can have similar symptoms. Fevers and weight loss can also be part of an autoimmune disease such as lupus.
