Subject: [ferrethealth] Re:Tumor in chest

Hi Stephenie
Sorry to hear about Breez. Yes a tumor in the chest is
common in young ferrets with juvenile lymphoma. However
we see it occassionaly in older ferrets to. Another tumor in
the chest would be a thyoma, but those are pretty rare.
It is hard to predict the future with cancer.
The tumor can cause a problem with breathing due to its size
in the chest or by fluid builing up in the chest.
Pred and cytoxan will help with lymphoma and hopefully slow
down the growth of the tumor.
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM
