How are you today?
I thought I would create this discussion so we can all get to know one another better!
So, what is your lymphoma diagnosis story? Do you have Hodgkin's or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma? When and how were you diagnosed? What symptoms were you having that let you know something was wrong? What treatments have you undergone? How are you doing today?

@Courtney_J Hi, I was diagnosed with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) about a year ago. I was having really bad night sweats and some pressure in my chest, and then I noticed a lump in my armpit. I went through about a million tests it felt like and they found it had spread. I went through a few rounds of R-CHOP (a lovely mix of chemo drugs) and today I'm in remission!

I was diagnosed with non-hodgkin's follicular lymphoma in March this year, completely by accident, after a referral for stomach in January.
I don't really have symptoms, so it was a total shock when they told me that they saw enlarged lymph nodes on the CT scan and that I needed an urgent biopsy. The biopsy came back with stage 3A NHFL. I was and still shocked. In the day-to-day I don't really have any symptoms at all other than feeling more tired that usual and night sweats. I'm not in treatment because it's a slow-growing cancer so we're just watching to see how/if it develops.
