Made a mistake and didn’t get biopsy

Hi All

My little boy Pele was diagnosed with either IBD or lymphoma - I made a big mistake and put him on pred before a biopsy, my vet seemed like he was leaning against biopsy due to his age (16y), heart murmur and said it still might be inconclusive- I should of pressed more but I didn’t..:

So pele has been on pred 10mg and seems to be doing better, eating more, sleeping less, stabilized weight. But I am wondering if/when I should give him leukeran? With cancer would pred be this effective? If not maybe it’s just IBD? I don’t want to wait to give him the leukeran if he should have it but also don’t want to put him thru that either .....need some advice, thanks!
