Subject: Re: Monadonak ferret: Digest Number 38 -

This mass could be any number of things. I've seen some really weird
diagnosis lately from masses in this region. I'd be worried about
Lymphsarcoma because that could invade all of the organs. I've been burned
not taking samples from organs - even if the look ok. The last ferret I did
surgery on had a completely normal liver at surgery but I biopsied it because
we always do and the diagnosis came back
a month later CANCER. I had the slides reviewed and new slides cut from the
and all 7 pathologists agreed - CANCER.

Based upon the discription of the location of this mass alone could have
altered the motility. I would like to hear dr williams opnion on this masses
from this location.
