Can be very effectiv: Radiation therapy is commonly used and is highly effective for treatment of lymphomas but only for early stages(Mostly stage-1 and some cases of stage-2). For more advanced cases chemotherapy plays a more important role. You need to tell us what type of lymphoma it is and what is the stage of disease before we can give you a more reliable answer.
