Q. My 11 year old male cat has a tumor in his ear. The vet removed it 2 months ago. It has never healed. The tumor is now back. It is larger than before.

A. It would be important to know what the nature of the tumor is in order to advise on the best way forward here. A biopsy is required to be examined by a specialist pathologist in order to determine the best chance of a cure in this case. If it is a benign, polyp type lesion then further surgery may help, some cancerous type growths can respond well to medications but without more definitive information it is impossible to recommend any specific course of action
