Cancer in animals
Cancer is a disorder of cell growth that results in an abnormal mass of tissue, known as a tumor, without a purpose.
Cancer can affect animals just as it can affect humans, and it has been present throughout recorded history.
As animals age, the possibility of a mistake (mutation) occurring during cell division increases, which can lead to cancer.
While some cancers in animals are causally linked to obesity, infection and inflammation, there are some viruses and other microorganisms that can cause cancer in animals.
Malignancy is often described by tumor names ending in carcinoma or sarcoma.
These, together with the origin or type of tumor, the grade (how aggressive it looks under the microscope), and stage (how far it has spread), indicate the type of cancer.
Veterinary oncologists work together with veterinarians to provide the best care for pets with neoplasia (the abnormal growth of cells).
Diagnosis typically involves a physical exam, blood tests, imaging tests and a biopsy.
Treatment options for cancer in animals include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and immunotherapy.
The choice of treatment depends on the type and stage of cancer, as well as the animal’s overall health.
