Green, 43, said, “So there have been many times over the last few weeks where this has become more and more real. This is the big one.”
He said, “I noticed that my lymph nodes were big. I talked to my doctor. She said, ‘It’s probably nothing. We’ll send you in for an ultrasound.’ I got an ultrasound, and the tech in the ultrasound room said, ‘I’m going to go get a doctor.’ That’s not what you want to have happened.”
Hank Green claims he was booked for a biopsy immediately, resulting in the cἀncer diagnosis.
He continued, “When you’re in the American healthcare system, you don’t expect things to move quickly. That’s not what it does. That’s not what it looks like. When it starts to get a little efficient, it’s actually quite disconcerting.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, lymphoma symptoms might include fatἰque, shortness of breath, night sweats, weight loss, fever, and itchy skin. Other signs of lymphoma include painless swelling of the lymph nodes in the neck, armpits, or groin. White bl∅∅d cells that fight infection are distributed throughout the body through the lymph system, which is an essential component of the immune response.

Green said he is “not really looking forward” to commencing chemotherapy, but he is hopeful that the treatment will begin “very soon” and grateful for his solid support system.
He said, “All of the time that I have spent investing in friendships, and even when they have been hard, to try and keep them strong, and even when I have been busy, to try and spend time with them, has been joyful in the moment and wise in the long term. I’ve really needed friends in the last few weeks, and I’ve been very grateful to have them.”
Green also reassured his supporters that he keeps a good attitude and will “play it by ear” regarding his future endeavors.
“Even though I don’t feel bad at all right now except for some soreness because of the biopsy and maybe because my lymph nodes are big. I don’t feel any symptoms of this. I feel fine. I don’t even really feel fatἰgued,” Green claimed.
He jokingly said, “I feel stress symptoms.”
