I believe that by this time, you may have already read in your research that a biopsy may be needed.  Your symptoms are indeed compatible with lymphoma but there is no absolute way to ascertain this but through a biopsy procedure.

There are other conditions that can explain these symptoms like chronic infections (TB) though this would also need histologic confirmation.

I suggest that you have one of the lesions sampled to settle things once and for all.
