According to the National Cancer Institute’s SEER database, the 5-year survival rate of them also improves. More than 8,000 patients were surveyed, who were diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma from 1988 and 2001.

  • At stage I and II, the 5-year survival rates are the same, at around 90%.
  • At stage III and IV, the 5-year survival rates are around 80% and 65% respectively.

It is just a survey about 5-year survival rate. Many patients live longer than 5 years. Please bear in mind that the provided survival rates are just estimates. Your own life expectancy remains unknown. It is important to talk to your doctor for better and more suitable treaments.
