Is white spots on skin a sign of lymphoma?

Hi My husband has a lump on the underside of his right jawline was prescribed antibiotics and did not clear it up. The lump has grown in size from quarter size to golf ball size in about 3 weeks to a month. He is going for a biopsy tomorrow and I was wondering if you could prepare me for what I fear it might be. Do you think it could be cancerous. He also has a problem with the skin white spots have been appearing over the past couple years which at first I thought was a lack of pigment in the skin but now that this has come I wonder if it could be a side effect of lymphoma. Your thoughts??
