In brief: Yes, it is possible

There are different types of lymphomas which can range from slow growing to rapidly progressive.
All lymphomas, even low grade can lead to death if not treated.

In brief: Yes

Ignore lymphoma and it will kill you, unless you die of something else first.
Depending on the subtype, it can take either a few days or many years. Many lymphomas are curable and all are at least somewhat manageable today.
