Actions for These Symptoms

If your cat shows worrying signs, don't panic. Remember that many factors may make cats ill besides cancer. Consider any changes that may affect your cat's symptoms. Example: diarrhea after eating a new food or sneezing on a spring pollen day.

The most essential thing is to watch for changes in your cat as anything might be cancerous. Make a 3-5-day vet appointment if your pet is acting strangely.

Still displaying signs? Take your pet in. If no, cancel 24 hours before the appointment. Instead of attempting to fit in last minute, your vet will appreciate it. In case your cat worsens before the appointment, attempt to arrange a quick appointment or go to the ER.

Your cat should be evaluated for any lump that is larger than 1cm (1/2 inch), lasts more than a month, grows, changes, bleeds, or doesn't look/feel like other lumps. Small mass removal is safer, less painful, and cheaper than large mass removal, especially on the face and limbs. Check any unexpected growth changes.

If your cat does anything worrying or you find a bulge, see a vet. Physical exams can detect malignancies like mammary nodules. Some require blood, X-rays, or ultrasounds to identify. These tests help determine your pet's health.

The first step in diagnosing cancer is to take a tiny cell sample to examine under a microscope. An aspirate. The initial sample may often distinguish cancer from a benign bump, but not always.
