My sister 20 years just died of lymph node cancer (lymphoma malignant non hodgkin). Is it possible that I could be affected as well? And is it necessary to do a doctor’s examination?

Hello Stephanie, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.


Malignant lymphoma is cancer of the lymph nodes that has symptoms in the form of painless lumps that generally grow on the neck, armpits and groin, weakness, sweating at night, fever, more frequent infections, coughing, itching all over the body, weight loss drastic in a short amount of time, bleeding, abdominal swelling and pain, and chest pain.


Things that are thought to increase a person's risk of developing non-malignant lymphoma are age over 60 years, viral or bacterial infections, people who have low immunity, heredity (father, mother, or relatives suffering from malignant lymphoma), exposure to chemicals, and obesity.


I suggest if you have symptoms like the one above, you should consult as early as possible to the tumor surgeon, so that a thorough examination can be done, such as questions and answers, physical examination, and additional examinations if necessary.


What you can do now is:


- Consuming nutritious foods, such as fruits and vegetables at least 5 servings per day, do not consume too much red meat (beef, pork, lamb) and processed meat (salami, bacon, hot dogs) which have been linked to an increased risk of cancer


- Exercise regularly 30 minutes per day, five times per week (or a total of 150 minutes)


- Enough rest


- Avoid stress


- Avoid excessive exposure to chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides which can increase the risk of non-malignant malignant lymphoma


Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
