Hi lisasbrother,

You might be interested in this article on 8 causes of night sweats. It does list night sweats as an early symptom of some cancers, which could be true in your brother's case, but there are also a number of other possibilities. Have you spoken with his doctor about this symptom?

Best wishes,
