Lump in throat

Post by Caza66 » Sat Apr 14, 2018 6:08 pm

It’s been a while since I have had a rat with a lump. Yondu has a lump on his throat. It is hard, round and solid but doesn’t feel attached. I would have been inclined to think it is a fatty lump but it is harder than those. It’s about the size of small grape.

Any ideas?

Ive not seen any tumour lumps on the throat myself, did it come up quickly ?
Im wondering if its maybe an abscess ?

Most probably an abscess. Try to bring it to the surface with hot saline compresses several times a day.

I know this is a bit off-topic, but I love your rats names! I'm massively into Guardians of the Galaxy, and was actually intending to name my snails after characters (particularly Drax, Rocket, and Yondu).

I hope Yondu's lump turns out okay.

I have used all the supernatural cast names and these boys were my latest additions, round about that time so it had to be done. :lol:

Quick update, took Yondu to the vets yesterday as the lump has grown, about size of large grape now. Vet was a bit concerned, she did a fna but nothing came out so it is still possible that it is an abscess just gunked up. He’s back again today for them to operate and have a look at it. It will eventually impact on his airway. I didn’t think they would attempt it due to its location but I don’t really have a choice really. :(

Good luck to Yondu today. I hope the operation is a success and the lump turns out to be something simple.
