Listen as Dr. Rosen shares how often non-Hodgkin lymphoma/NHL is a fatal diagnosis.

Dr. Rosen:
Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma can be fatal. It isn’t fatal in every instance. They typically fall into three subsets, one called a high-grade, which if not treated can take an individual’s life over the course of weeks or months, but very high cure-rates with modern therapy.

The next group is referred to as intermediate grade; that group of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma we can cure approximately half of the individuals, and the other half, unfortunately, succumb to the disease, and then the indolent non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas, which cannot be cured, but which we can control, in many instances, for decades.
