The Professional Master’s Degree Small Animal Dermatology of TECH trains professionals to diagnose the type of neoplasms in pets and their treatment

Tumours or neoplasms are abnormal proliferations of tissues that start spontaneously, usually with progressive growth, without the ability to reach a defined limit, however, they can have a benign (benign tumour) or malignant (malignant tumour called cancer) behaviour. The Professional Master’s Degree Small Animal Dermatology explain the causes of this condition, which can appear in and from any tissue, so it can be found in any part of the animal and can be classified according to where it comes from.

In this way, this can be found if the pet shows the following symptoms: the presence of any increase in volume or mass that alters the harmony of the tissue, ulcerated or scabbed wounds that do not heal, anorexia, weight loss, depression, inactivity, vomiting, diarrhoea, pain during defecation, fever, dysphagia, cough, among others. It is also common in animals with the incidence increasing with age and in case they are malignant, the most common types of cancer are skin, breast, head and neck, lymphoma, testicular, abdominal, and bone tumours.

Considering the above, the veterinarian can implement therapy according to the type, behaviour, and the location of the tumour, there are several treatments available, surgical, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. Many times, more than one treatment is used at the same time and with this a total cure of the problem is achieved in some cases, in others a partial reduction of the tumour and in patients with malignant neoplasms with poor prognosis improve their quality of life.
