Thanks for writing to us.
The treatment for non Hodgkins lymphoma depends on the stage of the disease. The best centre for treatment in India will be Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute, New Delhi. The line of treatment involves both chemotherapy as well as radiotherapy.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
