Testicular Tumor (Seminoma) in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Removal of the tumor is the treatment of choice, which is best accomplished by castrating the cat. If the tumor is cancerous or has metastasized to other parts of the body, however, your veterinarian may recommend chemotherapy.

 

Living and Management

 

In general, the overall prognosis of cats that undergo castration is excellent. But this is dependent on the whether the tumor is benign or malignant.
