1357. Sarcoma in an older rabbit has recurred

Hi Dr Sing,

my rabbit XIAO, has who had recently been to your clinic for removal of her sarcoma near her left eye.

Today we again felt a small spherical lump around 0.3-0.5cm in diameter big in an area just a little higher up the previous area, this time its sitting quite near the eye (just a little above the eyelid). Do you think we should just bring her over this sun for you to take a look and discuss what is best for her?

Otherwise she is eating well and elated to be just reunited with her companion. Her stitches are still there, has not dissolved yet, but since the boy has no lower teeth, he can't do anything to it.

Regards,
A

Best to get it removed when it is very small and operable. However, please note that the sarcoma is spreading via the skin and there will be more recurrences.
