I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you upload a photo(s) of this tumor to our conversation? You can upload photos by using the paperclip or add file icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see those icons on your particular device) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/

I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing. Stage III mast cell disease is quite metastatic and so I need to consider that it can now be found locally outside the tumor as well as in distant sites causing a more general weakness.
