Feline Immunodeficiency Virus

Feline cancer is one of the serious conditions that cat owners have to be cautious. a This is a condition that spreads through the body and can be fatal in most cases. The rapid spread of the disease makes treatment is inefficient and therefore the chances of recovery are low. This extension process, called metastasis, is one of the primary reasons behind. The skin is the largest organ in the body. It is also the most common body can develop cancer. Skin cancer is called a general classification of various types of tumors which include any uncontrolled cell growth: * The skin. * Glands of the skin.

* Hair follicles. * Fat and connective tissues support. Metastasis occurs in the skin as a result of cancer in other parts of the body are termed as skin cancer because it causes elsewhere. In cats, skin cancer is especially possible in older cats between 6-14 years age. Known causes behind skin cancer include: * Light or white color of the skin.

This often leads to abnormal behaviors such as scratching or chewing the affected area. The squamous cell cancer, a type of skin cancer, often leads to the redness of the area and a crispy skin. Early detection of skin cancer is relatively easier compared to other cancers because the symptoms are easily visible. For example, looking for symptoms of liver cancer in dogs and cats, is a tedious process of keen observation to identify multiple symptoms. The regular examination of the skin needs to be done for your cat to notice certain signs like: * Tumors or lumps under the skin. * Defects, scaly areas or color change. * Progress of the above mentioned changes noticed above. * Changes in color and irregular areas in the cat's eyelids, lips and inside the mouth. An occasional massage and preparation with a fine comb to help catch the abnormality immediately. Diagnosis involves laboratory examinations: * An aspirate of the tumor. * A piece cut from the tumor. * Blood and urine. * X-rays to determine whether metastasis has occurred. If your cat is white in color or have a white nose and ears, you can minimize the risk to protect the cat from sunlight. You can also ask your vet about using sunscreens on light colored tips or ear.
