In brief: Combination chemotx.
This is a very aggressive disease that almost always results in death within one year if not treated.
However, if treated, many can be cured. The treatment is usually combination chemo.: 4 cycles of chop (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone), followed by radiation therapy. If cure is not attained, high dose chemo. And autologous hematopoetic stem cell transplant can be done.

In brief: Usually chemotherapy
The treatment is related to the type of lymphoma and the sites of disease.
Most lymphomas are treated with chemotherapy but radiation therapy is sometimes used.
