Where can you find information on the prognosis for non-Hodgkins lymphoma?
Prognosis is measured according to several different methods, according to the American Cancer Society. One standard prognosis measurement is the five-year survival rate, which is determined by measuring the percentage of patients who survive for five years or more after diagnosis. Another common prognosis measurement is called the five-year relative survival rate. The relative survival rate compares the five-year survival rate of people who are diagnosed with the five-year survival rate of people the same age who are not diagnosed with cancer.
