Mast Cell Tumor in Cats

My precious little cat just underwent surgery for a mast cell tumor on his head. The vet said that it was "not cancer" but that if it spread it would be cancer. :shrug:

The tumor was the size of a marble and he said that normally they are the size of the tip of a pencil. They were not able to get all of it as it had gotten into the ear. Since he has only one good ear left (he has a cauliflower ear due to a hematoma) they did not take off his ear.

The vet said to check his head once a week to make sure it is not coming back. He also offered to biopsy his lymph nodes, but if they found anything it would mean chemo and radiation and I don't see the point in putting an animal through that.

Anyway, I would like to hear from any of you who had this type of tumor on your animal. :bawl:
