Cryosurgery to remove possible mast cell turmor - how long before it falls off?

May 31st, 2009, 12:46 PM
My greyhound has a very small growth that the vet suspected was either a mast cell tumor or some other malignancy. They did a cryosurgery to remove it and said it would shrivel and fall off. But, I forgot to ask how long that would take!

It's been 2 weeks now, and it's still there.

I have no idea how long but I would think that it shouldn't be much longer than two weeks. :shrug:

Has it started to shrivel?

I would give your vet a call and ask. :thumbs up

No, it hasn't really started to shrivel either. It seems 'flatter' than it was though.

Yeah, I keep forgetting to call the vet!
