Brief Answer:
Yes, this is potentially curable

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query. I have gone through the reports attached.

It appears that the diagnosis has been confirmed as lymphoma. As per PET scan the stage is 4.

However, this responds very well to therapy and at least 50% patients can be cured.

Treatment consists of chemotherapy and immunotherapy.

Hope I have answered your query.

Regards.
