In brief: Non-Hodgkin's test

Although a diagnosis of non-hodgkin's lymphoma can be suspected by certain lab results (ldh, spep, cbc, beta-2 microglobulin) or radiology tests (ct or pet scan), there is no way to diagnose it without doing a biopsy (of a lymph gland or the bone marrow or the affected organ).
