Cancers and Tumors in Hamsters

Treatment

 

Your veterinarian will likely recommend surgical removal of the tumor because tumors may grow and spread to other locations in the body. Surgical removal in the early stages improves the chances of full recovery. However, late detections may cause some of the tumors to become malignant (cancers).

 

Living and Management

 

A hamster recovering from surgery requires supportive care. Consult your veterinarian regarding the type of care and management needed during this postoperative period.
