Hello. I will wait for you to reply so we can discuss.
Okay. It really depends. If it is cancerous, it may be difficult to fully excise it.
Under certain circumstances, radiation treatment, first, can be very successful to shrink it, and then surgical intervention is considered.
So, the biopsy result will be very important. I could, or your vet, go as far as saying a CT may be indicated first, to know how infiltrative it is into the throat area. There is a lot of "hardware" for the body in the throat, and it may further complicate any surgical procedure being performed.
Tough. Got to start with the biopsy to know what you are dealing with before moving forward.
Are there any specific questions we shouls ask our vet once we know what it is, and do you know Dr. Gregory( former instructor @ UC Davis) He is the Vet we are going to see.
Yep. I know him. He was one of my instructors. Very capable. Specific questions should include:1. If cancerous, is a CT or other imaging scan recommended to know how infiltrative the cancer is before considering surgery. 2. Is radiation treatment a possible consideration before surgery?
I will contact again tomorrow once we get the biopsy results
