If you or your loved one was exposed to toxic chemicals in the workplace, it is a good idea to be aware of symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The incidence of this cancer is rising in the United States, and no one knows why. However, numerous studies have found higher rates of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma associated with workplace exposure to cancer-causing chemicals, include benzene, polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), pesticides, dyes, and herbicides like Roundup.

Lymphoma and Workplace Exposure to Toxic Chemicals
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a common type of lymphoma, which is a blood cancer that affects lymphoid tissue, including lymph nodes, spleen, and other organs in the immune system. It occurs when white blood cells (lymphocytes) are in a state of uncontrolled growth and multiplication.
Our lawyers are concerned because cases of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma are on the rise in the United States. No one knows why lymphoma is quickly becoming one of the most common cancers in the country. However, some experts warn that non-Hodgkin lymphoma could be caused by workplace exposure to toxic chemicals, such as benzene, polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), pesticides, herbicides, certain food additives, environmental pollutants, and more. Unfortunately, there is strong evidence that these chemicals are carcinogens, meaning that they can damage DNA and cause cancerous growths.
What are the symptoms of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma?
According to the National Cancer Institute, symptoms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma include:
- Swollen, painless lymph nodes in the neck, armpits, or groin
- Unexplained weight loss
- Soaking night sweats
- Trouble breathing
- Chest pain
- Weakness or tiredness that does not go away
- Pain, swelling or a feeling of fullness in the abdomen
Usually, these symptoms are not due to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. However, because many serious illnesses or infections can cause similar symptoms, anyone who is concerned should see a doctor so the problem can be diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible.
