Marginal Zone Lymphomas
Marginal Zone Lymphomas

Sweating and Chills
Sweating and Chills

However, many people, especially those with follicular lymphoma, small lymphocytic lymphoma, marginal zone lymphoma, and indolent subtypes, will have no symptoms. Conditions other than lymphoma can also cause many of these symptoms. There are very few changes, or symptoms, that are specific to lymphoma.
