Pet Skin Cancer
Pets can get skin cancer. Tumors affecting the skin or subcutaneous tissue (the tissue just under the skin) are seen in pets. Many such as lipomas (fatty tumors), sebaceous adenomas, and papillomas (mole-like growths) are benign, meaning that they won't spread to other parts of the body. Unfortunately we also see the more threatening malignant tumors (that spread) such as melanomas, squamous cell carcinomas, and mast cell tumors.
