    Lymphoma can affect cats of any age, but it is most common in cats over 9 years of age. Cats infected with feline leukemia virus and/or feline immunodeficiency virus are more likely to develop lymphoma.

    Cats that are infected with feline leukemia virus tend to develop lymphoma at a much younger age, between 4 and 6 years of age or younger. Siamese cats may be more prone to develop lymphoma than other breeds.

    Incidence/prevalence

    Lymphoma has long been considered the most common cancer affecting cats. The prevalence may reach 200 per 100,000 cats, or 0.2 percent.

    Lymphoma is cancer of the lymph nodes, and when cancer anywhere in the body metastasizes, that's one of the first places it goes. So yes.
