For any pet owner, a benign tumor in a cat is a frightening diagnosis, not to mention oncology. But there’s no need to despair. Qualified surgeons can help treat the pet or extend its life. When it comes to cat cancer treatment costs, it’s important to be prepared for potential expenses that may arise during the journey to treat your feline companion’s illness. The diagnosis and management of cat cancer treatment can be complex and involve various medical interventions to ensure the well-being of your beloved pet. Cat tumor cases can vary in severity, and timely detection is essential for effective treatment and the best possible outcome. In the field of cat oncology, specialized veterinarians known as feline oncologists are dedicated to providing expert care and guidance, helping pet owners navigate the challenges of cancer in their beloved pets.

Types of Tumors

Depending on the type of neoplasm, a cat can have:

  • Benign mammary cancer – characterized by slow growth and no metastasis;
  • Malignant (cancerous) – characterized by rapid growth and metastasis (the spread of malignant cells through the bloodstream, leading to the appearance of disease foci in different organs).

Neoplasms are also classified into types depending on their localization. They can be:

  • External – visible visually, affecting the skin, muscle tissues, and bones;
  • Internal – not visible, sometimes palpable during an examination.

The most common types of cancer in cats

Cats are often diagnosed with:

  • Abdominal tumors related to breast cancer;
  • Lymphoma or lymphosarcoma;
  • Chest involvement, including lungs and pleura;
  • Liver neoplasms;
  • Skin cancer, such as on the neck, including squamous cell carcinoma, carcinoma, and others.

The exact causes of cancer development are unknown.

Signs of Neoplasms

In the early stages, feline cancer does not show any symptoms. Later, cancer can cause the following signs:

  • Edema in different locations;
  • Decreased appetite;
  • Weight loss;
  • Enlarged lymph nodes;
  • Appearance of blood in discharges;
  • Digestive and stomach problems;
  • Difficulty breathing;
  • Lethargy, fatigue;
  • Slow-healing skin injuries;
  • Discharge from the breast and genital organs.

Any of these symptoms in a pet should prompt an unscheduled visit to the veterinarian.
