In brief: Depends on the type

There are many different types of lymphoma.
Some are very aggressive and need therapy right away and others are slow growing. The success rate depends on the type of lymphoma. Please ask this question again with more specifics about the type of lymphoma.

In brief: Excellent

Specific subtypes have different survivals, but lymphomas can be survived and have a very high 5- and 10- year survival rate in the us, varying from a low of about 50% to as high as 98%.
Some require radiation therapy, but most are now treated with chemotherapy with excellent outcomes. An excellent source of information on the internet is at cancer.Net, the asco patient portal.

In brief: More info

More information is needed.
Hl or nhl? B cell or t cell? Subtype? Patient characteristics (young and health or old and ill)? There is no one simple answer at the individual patient level. See http://www.Cancer.Net/cancer-types/lymphoma-hodgkin and http://www.Cancer.Net/cancer-types/lymphoma-non-hodgkin.
