Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly
Well lymphoma would present with other symptoms like fever , night sweats and weight loss in addition to pain ( if at all it caused pain ) . Secondly the enlarged lymph nodes are usually easily picked on a chest x ray so i would say its unlikely to be a result of lymphoma .
Chest pain due to lymph nodes would be dull but there is no specific pain presentation linked with lymphoma as such .So in my view it shouldnt be a lymphoma with mere chest discomfort.
Hope it answers your query
Yes this shouldnt be lymphoma but it can be pleurisy or inflammation of membrane covering the lungs . You can take anti inflammatories like ibuprofen or naproxen and see if that helps
Yes lymphoma would cause enlarged hilar lymph nodes, easily picked on x rays
You are welcome.
