What are the symptoms of Mantle Cell Lymphoma?

Signs and symptoms of Mantle Cell Lymphoma

At the time of diagnosis, it is not unusual for patients to have multiple lymph nodes or other sites of the body affected. Patients with mantle cell lymphoma may have experienced any of the following:

  • loss of appetite
  • weight loss
  • nausea and/or vomiting
  • indigestion
  • abdominal pain or bloating
  • a feeling of “fullness” or discomfort
  • fatigue
  • swollen painless lumps in your neck, armpit or groin
  • night sweats

It is important to note that not all patients who have MCL will experience all or even any of these signs and symptoms. It’s also important to be aware that people that have some of these symptoms do not necessarily have mantle cell, but if you are worried after reading this, you should speak to your GP.

The Lymphoma Association have produced a really helpful document for patients with Mantle cell Lymphoma, you can download this here:
