Which lymphoma?: There are many different types of lymphoma- hodgkin's, non-hodgkin's- the agressive lymphoma, indolent etc. Also, not only the type of lymphoma but prognosis will depend on the stage of the disease, the biology of the lymphoma, the treatment received, response to therapy, overall condition of patient etc. For instance, the chance to get hodgkin's lymphoma is 1:400 and 1:2000 die from the lymphoma.
