1 doctor weighed in:

I suspect I have lymphoma - swollen hard lymph nodes (7 weeks), night sweats, low fevers, itchiness in legs, extreme fatigue, paleness, lost bit of weight. Last CBC was normal. What tests should I ask for? What other conditions are possible?

In brief: Get seen

You need to have Hodgkin's ruled out and any competent physician hearing this history will biopsy any clearly-abnormal or suspicious lymph node unless some other explanation is obvious.
Hodgkin's usually does not show on CBC. There's a couple of other considerations but let's get down to business. Most Hodgkin's gets cured nowadays. Best wishes.
