Subject: enlarged nodes?

I have a 7 1/2 year old ferret with subcutaneous lymphoma. All of
her lymph nodes are enlarged and she has been on pred for a month and
is responding well. I came back from a weeks vacation today and
noticed that she is much heavier than when I left. Fearing an
enlarged spleen I gently felt her abdomen and I felt two large lima
bean shaped lumps down near her genitals. I don't know where all the
lymp nodes are located, are those most likely just enlarged lymph
nodes? We had suspected that she had adrenal in the past because of
some hair loss on her abdomen but there have been no lumps or other
symptoms found so I've been thinking it's because she over grooms
that area. Could it be adrenal tumors instead?
