Lymphoma and Workplace Exposure to Toxic Chemicals

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a type of blood cancer that occurs in lymphocytes (white blood cells), which are an important part of the body’s immune system. Unfortunately, the incidence of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is on the rise in the United States, and no one knows exactly why. It is now one of the most common cancers, with more than 70,000 new diagnoses expected in 2013.

Some experts warn that cancer-causing chemicals, food additives, environmental pollutants, and workplace exposure to toxic chemicals may be to blame. In fact, there is strong evidence linking non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma to carcinogens, which are cancer-causing chemicals that can damage DNA and cause cells to start dividing and growing out of control.

What are the symptoms of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?

The National Cancer Institute has provided a list of common symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma:

  • Lymph nodes that are swollen but painless in the neck, armpits, or groin
  • Weight loss
  • Excessive sweating at night
  • Coughing, breathing problems, or chest pain
  • Persistent tiredness, fatigue, or weakness
  • Abdominal pain, swelling, or “fullness”

Experts recommend that individuals who are concerned about these symptoms should be evaluated by a doctor. These symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma may not actually be cancer, but they could indicate another serious medical problem, such as an infection.
