The news headlines are frightening. At least one jury has found Monsanto liable because Roundup® was a substantial factor in causing a person to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma. That jury awarded the plaintiff $80 million in damages.
If you use Roundup® at home or at work, then you may be concerned that you too could develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Symptoms of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
According to the American Cancer Society, some potential symptoms of non-Hodgkin lymphoma include:
- Enlarged lymph nodes
- Unexplained weight loss
- Unusual Fatigue
- Abdominal swelling
- Feeling full after only a small amount of food
- Chest pain or pressure
- Shortness of breath or cough
- Severe or frequent infections
- Easy bruising or bleeding
- Night sweats
Many of the signs of non-Hodgkin lymphoma are common to other medical conditions.
Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Diagnosis and Treatment
Since the signs of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma can be the same as signs of other medical conditions, it is important to describe all of your symptoms to your doctor. Your doctor can then use blood tests, urine tests, imaging tests, bone marrow tests, a physical exam, and other tests to determine whether you have non-Hodgkin lymphoma or another illness.
Once a diagnosis is made your cancer will be staged, and treatment may begin. Sometimes active treatment is not necessary, but other times treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, bone marrow transplants, and other treatments may be beneficial.
