Ok I googled it and from a lot of what was shown looked more like burn marks on the flesh. I did see one or two pics of yellow tang with the same bumps so you might be rt. It stated that it's due to poor nutrition but I feed my tang a nice size sheet of green , and brine or mysis every other day Idk !!!

Yes the thing with lympho is it can cause secondary infections. That's why some of the pics you may have seen look different than yours does.

Ok well FYI if it is lympho there is no cure. You just have to ride it out for about a month. Just keep him eating good and the water clean that's all you can do . Good news is that there is different strains for different fish. So if your tang has it only other tangs could get it.
