Chest wall and cheek swelling are rare sites of involvement by lymphoma. We hereby present two such cases with atypical presentations. Case 1: A 48-year-old male patient presented with a painful swelling over right cheek, which was clinically and radiologically suspected to be cellulitis and thus, incised and drained. Later patient presented to our hospital and fine-needle aspiration (FNA) was performed, which revealed cytological features consistent with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Case 2: A 30-year-old female patient presented with right anterior chest wall swelling, which was clinically diagnosed as cold abscess. However, FNA revealed cytological features consistent with Hodgkin's lymphoma. Both cases being reported were thought to be of infective etiology, which were however, diagnosed as lymphoma on FNA and thus led to a different management plan.
