The vet removed a growth from behind our cat's esphogus today that was blocking his nasal passages. The vet said the growth was mushy and emanated from his eustacion tube and was therefore inoperable. In short, the growth will probably reappear within the next 18-24 months and we will put our three-year old cat down. Is there no remedy?
I'm sorry to hear about your cat's tumor and know how stressed out you must be feeling. If I were you, I would get a second opinion at a large veterinary hospital or a vet surgical specialist(they can really work some magic). But, first and foremost, you've got to find out exactly what this growth is. Hopefully, your vet biopsied the growth and sent it out for analysis. Right? I seriously hope your vet sent it out, that is VERY important.
Hang in there, and know that there may be some other options out there.
