Non-Hodgkin B-cell lymphoma with morphological and immunohistochemical features of small lymhocytic lymphoma/chronic lymphocytic leukemia

Hodgkin's Lymphoma is a cancer in the Lympnodes of the body. More then likely her doctor will put her through Chemo and radiation.

Lymphoma is allot like leukemia in the way it is treated. The good news is that it is very curable in most patients. There are very little people that die form lymphoma.

I'm very sorry for what you and your mother are going through. I'm going to give you a few links you can go to get more information.

"Ashley" has given you some good general sites to start, but she has a few mistakes.
Your mom will not be likely to have radiation for this subtype of NHL. "Lymphomas" are not always cured and they do end the lives of some patients. The NCI data in the site Ashley provides indicates some 65,980 cases of the many lymphoma types in the USA each year with ~19,500 deaths.

Here's a site more specific for the type you want to know about.

And another general site

Diffuse non-Hodgkin's lymphoma types by WHO classification:
Small cell (diffuse)
Small cleaved cell (diffuse)
Mixed small and large cell (diffuse)
Large cell (diffuse)
There are many other types of diffuse non-Hodgkin's B cell lymphoma, but the complete list is not what you asked about.

Your description fits the first one - small cell (B cell) diffuse
These are generally low grade malignancies (cancers) - responsive to simple chemotherapy - but difficult to cure. Impossible to predict time for her - and no doctor should try to make these impossible predictions. She could live for many years with this type of lymphoma and die from something else. Some people die 'with' a malignancy rather than 'from' it.

As for stage - you don't give us the information we need to assess that.
Your mother's oncologist has all of the staging info - extent of disease.
Strongly suggest being with your mother she when goes for her oncology visits. That's far better than asking us here - where we have incomplete information.
