Welcome to the forum, pmo
Well, pmo, I wouldn't be doing any waiting and watching.....
We never had a followup report from snarkytea
, so there's no learning from that story.
I can assure you that, IF your cat's lesions are EGC, the earlier the treatment, the better.
Did you READ the article that Love4himies
One more thing: all Vets are not 'created equal'. Many general practice Vets will either misdiagnose or mistreat EGC (that comes from my reading of other peoples' accounts on forums like this).
OTOH, most competent cat-only Vets will get an A++ in both categories!
, hopefully you'll return and tell us the outcome!
