In brief: Low

Hodgkin's lymphoma is treatable and curable disease in majority cases.
With the treatment that we have for hodgkin's lymphoma , if treated appropriately, the risk for dying from hodgkin's lymphoma is low- approximately about 1 in 400 will have hodgkin's lymphoma 1:2000 will die from it. Off course, the prognosis will depend on the stage, and biology of the cancer as well as overall condition of pt.

In brief: Depends on stage

I think the data referred to actually state that developing hodgkin lymphoma (hl) over one's lifetime is 1:2000, and that 1:5 people with hl will die of it.
Assuming you have hl, your chance of dying of it depends upon the stage of disease. Overall, about 20% of patients diagnosed with hl will die of this.
