3001. A 4-month-old dwarf hamster has a "tumour".

Dec 24, 2016

Christmas Eve. Another year has passed.
The young lady's boyfriend had sent her a link to Toa Payoh Vets' hamster tumour page and she consulted me.

"Likely an abscess than a tumour," I palpated a painful lump near and below the right ear. "This is a very young dwarf hamster. Unlikely to develop tumour."

Anaesthesia by gas. Incise, drain and sent home after one hour's wait.
