The survival rate for both types of lymphoma cancers is good once treatment begins, according to Medical News Today. Of the patients diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, two-thirds survived for five years. 85 percent of patients diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma meet or exceed the five-year survival rate.

The survival rates of both Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma depends on the stage of the disease when it is diagnosed, according to Medical News Today. Stage I refers to a tumor that is localized in one area. Stage IV denotes that the lymphoma has spread to other areas of the body. An “A” or “B” is added to the stage to indicate more advanced symptoms.
