Subject: leiomyosarcoma - reposting question
I just had a ferret operated on that had typical adrenal symptoms.
removed what she thought was a large right adrenal tumor. The path
came back as a Leiomyosarcoma. After looking that up and realizing
is a Smooth Muscle Tumor (hope I got that right), I realized that
vet I went to mentioned that he has had two cases of the same thing
My questions are: What does this mean for the ferret as far as the
symptoms? Is this what was causing the problem or should I still
ferret to have adrenal troubles? What is the long term prognosis of
tumor? Also, should I be worried that the two vets I use have
these Smooth Muscle Tumors for Adrenal tumors? I realize they are
that needed to come out, just wondering if it should have been
this wasn't an adrenal?
Thank you for any insight to this question.
