Non hodgkin's lymphoma stage 4 life expectancy?

Depends...

Lymphoma
....on the "flavor" of the lymphoma. Patients with stage IV low grade lymphomas may do well for years without treatment whereas a stage IV aggressive lymphoma has a more variable course.

Many types of non-hodgkins lymphoma and prognosis varies. Even with stage IV, some are very curable. Need more details. Good luck!

Dr. Hung Khong answered:

Stage 4 non Hodgkin's lymphoma 10 year survival rate?

Still good prognosis

Hodgkin_disease
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.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

I had stage 4 aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma last year, 6 months later I am cancer free! What are the chances of it coming back?

Better than even

Cancer
This depends on variables including your age (younger does better), but even ten years ago, about 2/3 of people with stage IV (and stage is the major prognosticator) who were alive at one year were alive at ten (at which point it's unlikely to recur). Your oncologist has better numbers, but for any individual, it's either 0% or 100%. Cherish each new day, and best wishes.

Dr. Ed Kaplan answered:

What would treatment look like for a teenager experiencing Non-hodgkin's lymphoma, stage I or II?

Depends on type

Hodgkin_disease
Not common but not different than for adult, I think: if Indolent- surgery and possibly radiation then watchful waiting (maybe with bone marrow harvest for later use) If more aggressive, would use biochemotherapy (i.e.: "R-CHOP") after surgery. May also include radiation and marrow harvest.

My father (age 65) is diagnosed with non Hodgkin's lymphoma of T cell origin..doctors said its 2nd stage. Is it curable ?

Not likely curable

Lymphoma
But it is often quite treatable, and new drugs are being released quite often. Most persons his age will die with this lymphoma rather than of it.

Dr. Scott J. Diede answered:

Can symptoms of non hodgkin's lymphoma improve without chemo?

No

Cancer
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), like other cancers, requires treatment. That treatment can be varied (surgery, chemotherapy, radiation), but it is required for the cancer to be treated. It will not regress on its own.
