Depending on the cancer, often a patient can live years without much treatment. A doctor may chose “Watch and Wait” - a strategy of waiting until symptoms are such that treatment should proceed. With newer immunotherapies, the era of Watch and Wait may be over as effective treatment may be able to proceed as soon as the lymphoma is detected.

Then he probably is in remission. My mother is in remission with Lymphoma and has done really well since her chemo treatments 4 years ago. However, the chemo caused permanent bone marrow damage. For this she is is treated regularly for anemia with injections to stimulate the bone marrow. Those injections have worked really well for her.
