In brief: Not necessarily.
"lymphoma" acrtually encompasses many different diagnoses.
In general, lymphomas a very responsive to chemotherapy. Some, like hodgkin lymphoma are frequently curable, even in advanced stage. For some of the aggressive lymphomas, response depends on a number of factors, including age and stage, but still can do well. The low grade lymphomas are not curable, but many years of life are possible.

In brief: Discuss with your MD
What do you mean by advanced lymphoma? Lymphoma is one of few cancers-besides testicular cancer- that we can cure.
It is very chemosensitive/radiosensitive and very treatable. Even for the very advanced stage like stage ivb-the prognosis would be much better than many solid cancer.Please see your oncologist and discuss all possible options available for you. Keep your positive attitude. Good luck.
