It depends...: Nhl has over 40 subtypes. Treatment depends on dx, stage, prognosis, tumor & patient factors. Dlbcl: r-chop most common fl: observation vs. Rituximab vs. R-chop vs. R-bendamustine vs. Other... That is vague, but there is no general answer.

Chemot and radiation: Staging of disease, and cell type are most critical. This is a complex group of diseases. Some do not need treatment right away. Many need chemotherapy. Some early stage cases can be treated with radiation alone. In all cases, continued check ups are necessary because the disease can return with time.
