In brief: Systemic and local

Non hodgkins lymphoma may cause systemic symptoms such as weight loss, fever, night sweats and itchiness.
Locally, it can present as a lump or sweling in the head and neck, groin or any lymph node area. If it's large, it can obstruct passage ways such as esophagus, intestines, ureter or blood vessels. If it involves the chest, it may give symptoms of cough, shortness of breath or pain.
