Signs and symptoms of low-grade lymphomas include the following:

  • Peripheral adenopathy: Painless and slowly progressive; can spontaneously regress

  • Primary extranodal involvement and B symptoms: Uncommon at presentation; however, common with advanced, malignant transformation or end-stage disease

  • Bone marrow: Frequent involvement; may be associated with cytopenias(s) [1] ; fatigue/weakness more common in advanced-stage disease
