Yes, absolutely: lymphoma is very treatable, and in many cases is curable- off course it will depend on the type of lymphoma, the staging, biology of the lymphoma, your overall condition etc. in general, lymphoma is very sensitive to chemo and radiation therapy.

Lymphomas: ...are amongst the most highly treatable tumors, and many people with lymphoma have been cured. However, there are different types, some of which grow slower and are harder to eradicate.
