I woke up about a week ago with generalized lymphadenopathy (swelling of several areas of lymph chains on my body) and the blood test results for CMV and toxoplasmosis antibodies are still pending.

Since, the swelling has gone down around the chains, but I have developed a cough, and have been experiencing profuse sweating at night for at least a month.

There is still an occipital node that is rock hard, over 2 centimeters, and unmovable. I am only 20 years old. Could this really be lymphoma?

I know I should not worry until the blood tests come back, but everywhere I look points to blood cancer. What is the differential diagnosis on these symptoms?

I'm 19 and suffering exactly what you describe.Best wishes
