New here and found out after 4 weeks living with a large lump in my leg, that I have stage 2 lymphoma..
I was confused at first as I thought, how can it be this when I seem not to have the symptoms like weight loss...but recently I have been in more pain as the lump is now the size of a small orange..
I also have hypothyroidism...which could mask those effects? Who knows...I am waiting to see the Hematologist next week and with hope he can fill in the blanks..
The more I know, the better I can understand..
Sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed with a lymphoma. it must have come as quite a shock for you. This forum relates to acute lymphoblastic leukaemia which is a different type of blood cancer to lymphomas so not sure if you will get much information here to help you. However, there are a few different groups for lymphomas. Do you know what type of lymphoma you have and then I can post a link for you and then hopefully you will be able to chat with people in a similar position to you and get more information and ask questions.
look forward to hearing back from you.

This was the only community that showed up for me and came closest to what I know I have.
I will be seeing the hematologist next week, so with hope he will be able to fill in the blanks...
Many thanks for replying...
