Skin Cancer (Mucocutaneous Plasmacytoma) in Cats



If the tumor has become invasive, surgery is typically recommended to excise the tumor and surrounding tissue. Radiotherapy is also conducted in some cats in order to destroy the neoplastic tissue.


Living and Management


Fortunately, most cats respond well to surgery and radiotherapy, and overall prognosis is excellent with treatment.
