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.

In brief: Need more informatio

Nhl is actually a conglomerate of many different types of lymphoma.
This category encompasses both b cell and t cell disorders as well as low grade and high grade disorders. In todays world a diagnosis of nhl is meaningleess as we now understand the differences between many of these lymphomas. In order to provide a more meaningful answer the type of nhl would be needed.
