91% of men survive Hodgkin lymphoma for at least one year, and this is predicted to fall to 84% surviving for five years or more, as shown by

95% LCL and 95% UCL are the 95% lower and upper
Five- and ten-year survival is predicted using an excess hazard statistical model
Hodgkin lymphoma survival gradually continues to fall beyond five years after diagnosis. 79% of men and 83% of women are predicted to survive their disease for ten years or more, as shown by age-standardised net survival for patients diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma during 2010-2011 in England and Wales. Out of 20 common cancers in England and Wales, ten-year survival for Hodgkin lymphoma ranks 4th highest overall. This relatively high survival is mainly a result of improvements in treatment over time, including advances in radiotherapy technology and more effective combinations of anti-cancer drugs.

Survival for Hodgkin lymphoma is reported in Scotland and Northern Ireland,[3,4] though it is difficult to make survival comparisons between countries due to different methodologies and criteria for including patients in analyses.
