  • Frequent infections
  • Easy bruising or bleeding
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Night sweats
  • Bone pain

  • Abdominal pain or swelling

Causes

  • Genetic factors
  • Exposure to certain chemicals or radiation
  • Viral infections (e.g., Epstein-Barr virus, human T-cell leukemia virus)
  • Immune system disorders
  • Family history of blood or lymph cancer

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the patient’s risk factors, such as family history, exposure to toxins, or previous radiation therapy.
  • Assess the presence and duration of symptoms.
  • Inquire about any medical conditions or medications that may increase the risk of blood or lymph cancer.

Physical Examination

  • Palpate lymph nodes for enlargement or tenderness.
  • Examine the abdomen for any signs of organ enlargement.
  • Check for signs of anemia or bleeding.

Laboratory Tests

  • Complete blood count (CBC): To assess the levels of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
  • Blood chemistry panel: To evaluate organ function and detect any abnormalities.
  • Peripheral blood smear: To examine the morphology of blood cells.
  • Bone marrow biopsy: To analyze the cells in the bone marrow for any abnormalities.
  • Flow cytometry: To identify specific markers on the surface of blood cells.
  • Genetic testing: To detect any genetic mutations associated with blood or lymph cancer.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • X-rays: To visualize the bones and detect any abnormalities.
  • Ultrasound: To assess the size and structure of organs, lymph nodes, or masses.
  • CT scan: To obtain detailed cross-sectional images of the body.
  • MRI: To provide high-resolution images of soft tissues and organs.
  • PET scan: To identify areas of increased metabolic activity, which may indicate cancerous cells.

Other Tests

  • Lymph node biopsy: To obtain a sample of lymph node tissue for further analysis.
  • Immunohistochemistry: To determine the presence of specific proteins on cancer cells.
  • Cytogenetic analysis: To examine the chromosomes for any abnormalities.
  • Lumbar puncture: To collect cerebrospinal fluid for analysis in cases of suspected central nervous system involvement.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor the patient’s condition and response to treatment.
  • Provide education and support to help patients cope with their fears and manage any treatment-related side effects.
  • Encourage open communication and address any concerns or questions.
