Concerned - lymphoma?

About 6 months ago I noticed that I had lymph nodes that were clumped together (matted) below my jaw (submandibular) I assumed I was coming down with something and shrugged it off. Now the whole underside of my jaw is clumped lymph nodes (They feel like two giant lumpy balls on both the left and righ sides) and my cervical lymph nodes are swollen. I have had fatigue, loss of appetite and weight loss. They are not painful, just swelling and clumping, some are hard, some are rubbery. I also noticed a small lump in the area of my parotid gland (possibly another node??)

My dr. told me she was sending me for an ultrasound twice, but hasn't done so yet. I am going again tomorrow to see her.

Any ideas as to what this may be? Does this sound like lymphoma?
