Hello,

The treatment of Stage I and II lymphoma is: Chemotherapy with or without radiation (which is standard of care). The prognosis usually is very good even in his age group if he does not have other medical conditions like diabetes, heart issues or lung disease associated. Some lymphomas may melt like ice with the treatment.
