Unhappy My kitty has lumps

This weekend i put a post on here that has almost resolved itself . I cross the fingers because it has cleared up before. So, my cats no longer have the rash on their chins that they had for months. I didn't change anything, it just disappeared after 3 months. I had mentioned one of my cats has various lumps over his body. my vet did a fine needle aspirate but the results are not in yet. She said that when she looked at the cells under the microscope, they looked abnormal. Well, now, one of his lymph nodes under his chin is about 3 times the size of the other. I asked if she was leaning toward one diagnosis or another. She said maybe lymphoma. So, would this cause the lymph node to get so big? I also find so much contradictory information that I am not sure what I would be looking at. Does anyone have experience with lymphoma? The lumps are right under his skin and moves with his skin if you pull the skin out. they do not ooze. they are not painful. the only other symptom he has is the swollen lymph node. For more info on the rashes they had, i did the post this weekend about rashes on and off. any info or ideas would be appreciated. He is almost 8 yrs old.

If your cat does indeed have Lymphoma then yes that is most likely the reason the lymph node is enlarged. Another possibility for the lumps is lipoma - basically a collection of non cancerous fatty tissue.

I don't have experience w/Lymphoma but here is some info:
