In brief: Different types
Non hodgkins lymphoma (nhl) is a malignancy from lymphocytes( one type of white cells) from the lymph nodes, however it can affect both lymph nodes and tissue outside lymph nodes.
Generally speaking chemotherapy and radiation will give very good chance of cure. But there are dfferent types of nhl that need catered treatment. Talk to your oncologist for specific questions.
