In brief: Often chemo

Some nhl types and stages are treated with chemotherapy alone.
Some require the use of radiation therapy alone or with chemo. Surgery is typically only used for making the diagnosis.

In brief: Chemo +/-radiation

The standard first-line treatments for non-hodgkin lymphoma are chemotherapy (+/- radiation therapy.
) the decision on which chemotherapy drugs, the length of treatment and the use of radiation depends on the stage of lymphoma and the response to treatment. Learn more here: http://www.Cancer.Gov/cancertopics/pdq/treatment/adult-non-hodgkins/patient.
