Subject: [ferrethealth] Skin problem in ferret that has lymphoma

One of my boys has (overnight) sprouted a red, raised growth that is flat except for it's raised at the edges, kind of rounded. It's also sort of spongy to the touch, just a little - and then seems fairly firm. It's the first growth I have seen like this. Usually they are just the mast cell growths which on my ferrets have been the thinner, on the surface only type of growth.

I am wondering if the firmness and perceived thickness of it indicates that I might be looking at cutaneous lymphoma. I have an appointment at 10:30 tomorrow and I read in the archives, it's recommended to take out any metastisized lymph nodes at the same time as the growth removal.

Of course, I don't know what it is, but have never seen such a skin tumor that felt thick like that before!
