In brief: Yes,

The cure rate for non-hodgkin lyphoma is high and getting higher by the newer medications.
It starts in the lymph nodes. Cure rates depend on 1- stage: limited versus advanced and/or involving other tissues, like liver or bone marrow. 2- type of lymphoma, small, diffuse, low grade or high grade.There are books and books on lymphoma. Trust your medical team and proceed. Be optimistic and beat it.
