It sure is treatable hodgkins Lymphoma is the better one but I had non hodgkins Lymphoma last year and a very large lession on the outside of my lung and it is a year since I had my treatment. I am doing great have 1 more year until I am in remission and then when I reach 5 years I am cured. It is something not to mess with and much better chance of it not coming back if you get it early. I had stage 1 maybe a possible stage 2 so I have an 85%-90% chance of it never coming back. If it has travelled further your chances are more for the disease coming back. The treatment I had was chemo and radiation. 4 months of chemo once a fortnight and 13 zaps of radiation. It was hard but you have to do what ever the doctor says to kill it. Good Luck.
