  • I've found more info for you; better go to the doctor for blood work: http://ubb-lls.leukemia-lymphoma.org/ubb/Forum2/HTML/000938.htmlPain from drinking alcohol is a classic sign of Hodgkin's disease. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hodgkin's_lymphomaClassically, involved nodes are painful after alcohol consumption http://in.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070506041540AAVjjma

  • Hiya, I read your post and thought it would be a good idea to reply as I had this same symptom 3 years ago! I went to my GP and he simply told me to stop drinking!! (I only drank a glass of wine at weekends). It wasnt until May 2009 when I got a lump in my left armpit, then a huge lump near my left ear that I went back to the doctors. After 4 months of blood tests a biopsy and being wrongly diagnosed with Glandular fever I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lympoma. I was/am stage 3. Perhaps if the original doctor had recongnised my Alcohol pain as a symptom then the cancer wouldnt have been so advanced. So please please get urself to the doctors. Let me know how you got on & good luck coz I truly hope it isnt what i have.
