Usually chemotherapy: The treatment is related to the type of lymphoma and the sites of disease. Most lymphomas are treated with chemotherapy but radiation therapy is sometimes used.

Combination chemotx.: This is a very aggressive disease that almost always results in death within one year if not treated. However, if treated, many can be cured. The treatment is usually combination chemo.: 4 cycles of chop (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone), followed by radiation therapy. If cure is not attained, high dose chemo. And autologous hematopoetic stem cell transplant can be done.
