Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? When did you first notice the lump?

Okay thanks for the additional information . Did your veterinarian get a sample with a needle? With an older cat that has a hard mass one tumor that I worry about is a sarcoma. That can be a common tumor in older cats. Even though it comes back as cancer there are some cancers that can be cured with surgery alone. While others are more aggressive and require chemotherapy or some other more aggressive treatment.
