Answer

In many instances, physical examination may be positive only for lymphadenoapathy in the region of the tumor. Other findings are dependent on tumor location. Secondary signs may include anemia, thrombocytopenia and neutropenia. Many patients have no physical examination findings at the time of diagnosis.
