Do people with stage IV non hodgkins lymphoma survive?

Postby ely » Sat Jul 07, 2012 6:35 am

Hello Sam,

I am so sorry to read that your mum has been diagnosed with lymphoma. This is very hard for me to give you this information. Your mum is very lucky to have such a wonderful child who cares so much for her. God Bless You and Mum.

Depending upon the stage, the type, age of the sufferer and other elements, the survival rate can be assumed. Survival rate basically exhibits the percentage of patients who are known to survive a particular type of cancer, for a specific period of time. Generally, for cancer patients, the period taken is for 5 years. Meaning, a five-year survival rate is usually used to determine the cancer statistics.

So the overall 5-year non-Hodgkin's lymphoma survival rate is, according to what the American Cancer Society touts, 63%. And if a 10-year survival rate is considered, then the figure is 51%.

So taking a 5-year period into consideration, it means that, of all people diagnosed with this condition, around 63 of every 100 were able to survive the condition at least for 5 years, post diagnosis and after receiving lymphoma treatment. Which again implies the fact that, the rest 49 out of 100 people, could not survive and died within the span of 5 years.

As far as survival rate for stage-4 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is concerned, this stage happens to be the most widespread form of the condition. Also, it happens to be the last stage. So most likely the survival rate may be less than what has been cited above. Now how less it may be, it is difficult to determine, as it varies from person to person, depending on various factors.

Please don't ask questions like this here... you will get answers from freaks like the pseudo doctor Bhupathi, or nasty people who just like to pretend they know stuff, when they really don't. I don't know the answer either, but you should ask the medical team helping your mother to help you too. I am so so sorry for you, and I would hate you to get wrong info. If you MUST research it yourself, go to reputable sites, like NHS, but not a site like this, which is just amateurs.
