Most likely chemo: There are quite a few types of non-hodgkin lymphoma (nhl), and the majority of them require chemotherapy of some sort. There are a couple types, if they are very low stage (not spread anywhere else), that complete surgical resection alone could be curative. I am speaking from a pediatric perspective (adolescents and young adults with nhl). Elderly patients may be quite different.
