Signs and symptoms may include enlarged lymph nodes, fever, drenching sweats, unintended weight loss, itching, and constantly feeling tired. The enlarged lymph nodes are usually stic method: Lymph node biopsy.   According to the SEER (Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results) database, the yearly incidence of Burkitt lymphoma/leukemia in the United States across all ages, between and was cases. Most of these cases occurred in patients between ages 20 and 64 years. This disease constituted % of all lymphoid tumors.
