Lumps and Bumps
There is nobody in this world who doesn’t know somebody in their family or circle of friends who has cancer. It is a scary disease, because even tough you can try and protect yourself as much as possible it can happen to anyone….. And our beloved pets are no exception.
Prevention is better than cure — we do not have blood tumor markers in veterinary science but we have many imaging modalities and laboratory tests to try and catch this insidious invasive often-deadly disease as early as possible.
In our clinic we can do radiographs, comprehensive blood profiles, blood smears and ultrasound examinations of the chest and abdomen to try and detect any abnormality as soon as possible.
If we see any abnormal structure we can do a Fine Needle Aspirate (FNA) and look at the cells under a microscope to try and identify the pathology and to make the decision for further surgical intervention.
The skin is the largest organ in the body and the most visible. We touch our animals every single day and therefore often find a “lump or a bump” that wasn’t there before.
