Greetings RW Jay Simcoe,

I believe you mean Stage 4 lymphoma. The common way to classify lymphoma breaks it down into 4 stages of progression. Here is a link to a page that discusses what each stage means. Basically, stage 4 means the lymphoma has spread to other organs such as the liver, lungs and bone marrow. The prognosis is more dependant on the grading of the lymphoma (not so much the staging) with high grade lymphoma being the worst.

Sincerely,

Dr.Bernon
