Lymphoma: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Updated on November 7, 2019

Below the surface, living with lymphoma can mean days spent in bed, missed appointments, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to lymphoma than meets the eye. We know that lymphoma comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.

On MyLymphomaTeam, the social network and online support group for people living with lymphoma, thousands of members discuss the chronic nature of the disease and its hidden symptoms. Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyLymphomaTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent lymphoma symptoms because the life-impacting implications of a lymphoma diagnosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread lymphoma awareness!

This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?
