The signs and symptoms of angioimmunoblastic T-Cell lymphoma (AITL) can differ from person to person, but they often result from the overproduction of abnormal white blood cells called T-lymphocytes. These lymphocytes crowd out healthy blood cells in the bone marrow and bloodstream, causing a variety of complications. Often these symptoms can mimic other illnesses, so it's important to stay aware of how you are feeling and seek medical attention promptly if you are concerned about anything.

The Most Common Signs and Symptoms of Angioimmunoblastic T-Cell Lymphoma Include:

  • Fever: This is not a typical fever that goes away after a few days. It's a high fever that persists for a long period of time.
  • Night sweats: These are severe hot flashes that occur at night and can make your clothes and bed sheets wet.
  • Weight loss: This is unexplained weight loss that cannot be attributed to diet, exercise, or other health conditions.
  • Fatigue: This is a feeling of extreme tiredness and lack of energy that doesn't improve with rest.
  • Swollen lymph nodes: These are usually painless and can be felt in the neck, armpit, or groin.
  • Skin rash: This can appear as red, itchy patches on the skin.
  • Shortness of breath: This can occur due to the lymphoma affecting the lungs or the presence of fluid around the lungs.

Seek Care For Your Angioimmunoblastic T-Cell Lymphoma

Seeking medical attention promptly if you are experiencing symptoms related to your AITL is of utmost importance. AITL is an aggressive cancer. Prompt initiation of treatment is essential to achieve the best possible outcomes. Delaying treatment can allow the lymphoma to progress, making it more challenging to achieve remission. 

Medical attention can help manage and alleviate your symptoms and side effects and allow doctors to tailor an AITL treatment plan that allows you to live as comfortably as possible. Doctors can adjust treatment as needed and provide supportive care to manage treatment-related side effects and complications. Coping with a cancer diagnosis is emotionally and psychologically challenging. You don't have to deal with side effects alone. In addition to discussing with your medical team, if you are experiencing AITL symptoms and want to know what has worked for other blood cancer patients, visit HealthTree's Side Effect Solutions tool. Here you can search for the symptoms you are experiencing and read about what's worked (and what hasn't worked) for patients just like you.
