Subject: Male ferret with a saggy belly

My 5+ year old male has developed what appears to be a very saggy
lower belly. When he walks his lower "belly" nearly touches the
ground. The area is not firm yet not real soft either. He has been
exhibiting signs of adrenal, in that he has begun to loose his fur on
his tail and back. He eats and drinks fine but for the last 1/2 month
or so I have noticed that sometimes when he is asleep his breathing
is quite audible. Could he have a tumor?
Thanks in advance,
