What is the survival rate for a 16 year old with stage III Non Hodgkin's lymphoma?

Postby riccardo » Fri Apr 08, 2011 9:19 am

There are many factors that will contribute to the chances of survival: progression of the disease itself, appropriateness of treatment, the (otherwise) overall health of the person, the body's response to treatment, etc. The actual chances of survival cannot be predicted here without more information.
Here is where you'll find the best info on the web:

They also have online counselors you can chat with.
Best wishes

I don't know the exact survival rate, but depending on the type that you have, your prognosis is probably still quite good. Lymphomas have higher survival rates than other types of cancer, and at the age of 16 your body is the most capable of defending itself.

would be helpful if you provided which type of non-hodgkin lymphoma it is.
