Non Hodgkin lymphoma: There are many type of b cells nhl.In general- very responsive to chemo and biological agent- which is the mainstay treatment of nhl. It is also sensitive to radiation tx which sometimes used as a single agent in a very limited localized stage. Treatment would depend on the biology, stage, other prognostic factors- like age, blood counts, symptoms, etc. Radioimmunotherapy, bmt are also available.
