In brief: Indefinitely

If you have completed your treatment and you are in remission, it is recommended that your are seen by an oncologist every 3-6 months for 5 years, and annually thereafter (2012 nccn guidelines).

In brief: Specific to disease

Depending on the type of lymphoma (there are many), how you were treated and if you are in remission or have stable disease, the frequency of check ups and the types of tests done will vary.
Many times patients are brought in more frequently for "mini" checkups and seen by the pa or np who communicate with the md just to make sure things are going ok.
