This study recruited 1286 newly diagnosed patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma through population-based cancer registries from 1998 to 2000. Those patients who smoked, consumed alcohol, or were obese before diagnosis had a poorer overall and lymphoma-specific survival after adjustment for clinical and demographic factors.
