Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer cats

throat

Fur is very soft, flurry, no hair balls. The owner of female cats...... Can you check your cats and see is there a big lump under between her back legs? Please post here and let me know even if it is "No".
He had to have 3-5 ml shoved down his throat a couple of times a day, in addition I had to shoot a pill down his throat with a straw and he had to have fiber added to his food. It was horrible and none of it worked very well. Our new vet was young and fresh out of vet school and recommended Miralax. I add about 1/4 tsp to some tuna, tuna juice or a couple tablespoons of wet food once a day. It gives him some loose stinky stools but it is so simple and it works.
lets see, lung cancer, throat cancer, esphogeal cancer, sinus cancer, tonsil cancer, lymphoma, melanoma, bone cancer, etc...the list continues. I know I'm acting crazy. When I think about it rationally, all of this just sounds absurd. But I can't stop. My wife just tunes me out now. Its got even worse after our son was born because of my fear of leaving my wife and child alone when I die...of cancer.
I don't have any throat pain at all.But I do get phlegm in my throat a lot and have to clear my throat a lot.I sneeze a lot because of allergies .... dust,perfume,cats,pollen,pepper.May I have some advice ?
Without making this an IBD thread, my vet told me IBD cats live a shorter life spam than other cats, and cancer in the colon was certain. Abby has not experienced the symptoms since I started the raw foods, but IF I feed him something other than raw foods he will go back to zero. I am not sure how IBD works in humans, but our system is way too different from a cat's system to even compare. And, well, months of research and reading articles about IBD cats have freaked me out. Abby is 2 y.o.
Hi everyone I am having a problem with my throat feeling like it is closing up and then I panic because it feels like I am not breathing. It used to just happen sometimes and now it happens everytime I lay down to go to sleep. Today I was in walmart and it happend it really scared me. My mom and dad told me it is from stress, but right now I dont feel all that stressed. I was wandering if someone could tell me why this is happening or does it happen to anyone else.
For about a week now, I have felt like there is something stuck in my throat. When it first started, I could feel it all the time and it felt like a piece of food was stuck. A few days later it only felt like a tickle, as if a piece of hair was caught in my throat. The past 3 days, I feel it off and on. Sometimes not at all. When I eat, I usually don't feel it, especially if it's cold food. It feels like it's right at the back of my tongue, at the top of my throat.
I have 4 cats and they stayed in the house with me but I treated them as they said w/ people. Keep them 3 feet away for 3 days. Don't sleep with them. I had to go outside several times and close my bedroom door because they seemed to want to be all over me.
It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
I have, over the last approximately 15-20 years suffered from swelling of the back of the tongue and the throat, and of the sinus cavities, perpetual unproductive cough, continual sinus drainage down the back of the throat and sometimes to the front of the nose, and overall fatigue and depression as a result. It has gotten so bad that I have had to give up the running and sports in which I used to participate. It is a hindrance to my overall quality of life.
its like a breath is being forced out of your lungs, sorta like a respiratory machine, i also have a strange ssensation in my lower throat if i twist and make the hollow sound for too long, im scared its lung cancer, and booked an appointment for next month....hopefully something will come of it, and i'll let you know!
It was suggested in the mag that this could be an oral problem such as some sort of inflammatory condition in the throat. If kitty is 10 or older, she is at risk for cancer since oral and throat cancer are *potential* problems with gagging. Gagging can sometimes be a sign of a problem in the esophagus, too. I would suggest your vet examine the inside of your kittys mouth just to be on the safe side.
with a soft rubber tip where u insert the pill it has a plunger on the other end, u put the tube down easily to abt the distance of the back of the throat then push the plunger, this ejects the pill far enough down their throat that is goes down very easily and far enough that they cannot cough back up....works just great! Costs only $5-6 dollars. I worked in an auxillary hospital and we even started using it there for people that can no longer swallow properly..
So there's a much lower success rate in these treatments. As far as it being a skin cancer...well, the skin is a vital organism, and even if the cancer doesn't spread to the other organs, an animal can't survive a progressive, spreading skin cancer... I think you can see the logic in this. Your only option now is to take your cat to the vet and get an evaluation to see if it isn't to late to do treatment.
I have always feared i was developing a serious illness like heart attack cancer rabies tetanus all kinds... Now i fear i am developing some sudden allergic reaction to fish dogs and cats... It all started when i ate some locally caught catfish my skin became itchy...
It might set your mind at ease. And yes, lymph nodes sometimes just do not go back down - without being cancer.
//www.medhelp.org/posts/Cats/Need-help-for-poor-appetite-cat/show/1789524 that would help me greatly. Here is additional information since the original post: I visited the vet again today (without kitty) and we are trying her on an aggressive anti-nausea and anti-upset stomach regimen for a few days (pills and injections, if we can manage it) to see if this will get her to eat again.
Also asked whether he has done a physical exam looking for cancer, done x-rays of skull, throat and lungs looking for cancer, if he has done a biopsy and if not, why not. And asked if he has done the procedure on cats as well as dogs, and why the bone removal was done, and about quality of life and length of life afterwards.
there is so much that could be wrong with a cat this age....i've had cats close to that age and when they stopped eating i thought cancer.....and i was right....stopping eating is a sign the body is shutting down....i don't mean to sound doom but when they do this there isn't anything that can be done...u might be able to entice them with stinky food but it will probably be short lived.I've sent 5 cats of my own to the Rainbow Bridge over the years......best of luck....
60 yr old female RN--healthy- that has been recently diagnosed with a paralyzed vocal cord--causes occassional hoarseness (strained voice), occassional dry cough, marked shortness of breath on exertion. Symptoms began following a sore throat and respiratory infection in July. Workup uncluded a chest CT that showed single 3mm nodule with scarring at the apices. Due to have MRI of head and U/S of thyroid; seeing a pulmonologist next week Father (non smoker) died at 80 of lung cancer.
From what I understand if this was not the only site, this is a fatal cancer with little or no treatment options. Is it safe to give the Host Defense supplemt which is supposed to raise immunity in some cases 300%? I also saw something that in elevating immunity, the B-cells are involved. If the cancer was a B-cell lymphoma, would the supplement cause the activation or speeding up of this type of cancer? Please, I am looking fro treatment options.
Our first doctor and the ultrasound doctor told us it is operable but not a good option for this type of cancer. The tests revealed it is also in his lymph nodes so we can only assume it is spreading. He is still very active, purring, shiney coat, eating, drinking....so we elected to try a course of Prednisone, although the third vet we went to was strongly pushing surgery and Chemo. After waiting a week and speaking to a variety of doctors we finally got a prescription for Pred.
but then i started to have a lump on my throat...well, to make a long story short..drs thought it was 'cat scratch fever'..and then a cancer scare of Lymphoma...i ended up having lymph node surgery on my neck for that lump...thank GOD it was not CANCER BUT a lymph node full of bacteria due to the 'scratch' of that lil kitty.. so, if i were YOU, do go to the Dr and watch out for any other symptoms ok...just as a precaution..cause cats do carry some viruses in their claws.. DO TAKE CARE PLEASE..
If a really stupid person become senile, how can you tell? You show me something that doesn't cause cancer and I'll show you something that isn't on the market yet. Grown ups have great power.The can order candy on credit cards over the telephone and have it delivered. The sound of one hand clapping is the same as the sound of a tree falling in the forest when no one is there to hear it. What clinic did Betty Ford go to? Do you know what they don't have?
They did an oral exam, everything looked good but then the vet suggested to get his ears cleaned since there was a wax build up and sometimes cats lose their balance if their ears are not clean. We went ahead and got his ears cleaned. We brought Simba home but Simba did not improve. He seemed to have lost his appetite as well, he did however go down the stairs and use his litter box. The next morning, on Saturday, I called his regular vet and took him in.
I'm allergic to cats, but took pity on him when he came begging in my garden. I don't think I can handle getting him in a box to take to a vet. I live in a country where cats are regarded as vermin and there isn't a cat charity to ask for help. I looked it up on the internet, and I think he might have a fungal growth there that would require an expensive veterinary medication protocol that I can't afford even if I could somehow get him to a vet. Is there anything I could give him to help?
lol theres another lady on here too that had her cats ears amputated due to cancer....the cats name is Jade (if memory is correct)...and I believe her name is Jade2..you could look at some of his after pictures...and he is still a handsome devil!. I will check out the names for sure and let you know.... (sorry Jade if I got you mixed up here...
Located right above the collar bone. Swelling from the throat to the back of the neck. Pain around the node but not on the node itself. Antibiotics for 1 wk have not helped (cefdinir 300 mg twice daily). CT scan shows swelling of the tissue in the neck and son was referred to ENT specialist at Children's. Low grade fever comes and goes, night sweats/cold sweats. Restless during the day and night, sleeping meds to make him sleep at night.
Mouth and throat ulcers in cats are very much like cold sores in humans and they are caused by the same thing...alergies or stress. Unfortunately, there are no effective treatments to prevent them other than to eliminate the cause.
There is always someone who will understand and talk to you. Hugs to you and your cats, along with some hairballs and a milkbone from my cats and dogs ....
