Finding multiple folders in Linux with single command

Finding multiple folders with single commend on Linux is not a big deal.

I wanna know all temp / tmp and cache folders in websites, that are configured with WHM to exclude from the backup. Here is the command for that,

find /home/*/public_html \( -type d -iname "cache" -or -iname "tmp" -or -iname "temp" \)

To know size of these folders,

find /home/*/public_html \( -type d -iname "cache" -or -iname "tmp" -or -iname "temp" \) -exec du -sh {} \;
