What is the life expectancy of Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma?

A:

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) is a common type of blood cancer with relatively optimistic prognosis. According to Lymphoma.org, the overall survival rate for patients with NHL is 63%. At the same time, 30%-60% patients with aggressive NHL can be cured. For example, the survival rates of localized, regional, distant and unknown cases are 81.6%, 72.9%, 61.6% and 66.9% respectively.

However, survival rates are just estimated based on previous cases. Life expectancy among individuals varies. It depends on the specific type and stage of the disease and the treatments recommended. Therefore, talk to your doctor for better and more suitable treatments and results.
