TcellNHL: The cure is dependent on sub t cell types, stage of disease, age of patient, lymphoma in node or organ, person's ability to do activity of daily living and ldh level. The doctor needs to know these things. Your father's hematologist/oncologist must have them and would be in a better position to answer. Thanks.
