10. Chest Pains.
Once lymphoma affects the lymph nodes located in the chest, the windpipe gets squeezed and can cause trouble breathing, regular coughing and pain in the chest. The chest pains could even cause pressure because the trachea is compressed. Lymphoma that affects the chest causes the lymph nodes to press on the superior vena cava making blood to clot in the veins. These blood clots then cause bluish-red painful swellings in the head, arms and upper chest. The painful swellings cause trouble breathing and greatly affect consciousness in the brain thus causing chest pains.
