Still good prognosis: Survival rates for nhl vary widely, depending on the lymphoma type, stage, age of the patient, and other variables. The overall 5-year relative survival rate for patients with non-hodgkin’s lymphoma is 63% and the 10-year relative survival rate is 51%. All the best, hk.

Many good treatments: You should go and see a Medical oncologist. They can treat you with chemotherapy which works very well and can often cure this disease. But avoid delays in getting to a good Oncologist or to a major Cancer center where you can find specialists for treating Lymphoma.
