    ExclamationHistiocytoma hasn't shrink in 3 months...

    My girl also has a histiocytoma (diagnosed by needle aspiration) on the tip of her ear. It's been the same size for 3 months, which seems to be the maximum wait period to see if it resolves on its own...

    So I am thinking of getting it removed... Is this the right choice?

    What is the best way to have it removed? Once my vet mentioned using liquid nitrogen to 'burn' the wart... Are you aware of this method?

    Oh, and I am going to the vet to also check that other problem in the same ear (in my earlier thread)

    Thanks

    It seems weird that she has a histiocytoma and this other problem on the same ear. I would worry that they are connected. I would seek another opinion from another vet.

    Bauer had a histocytoma on his head when he was about 15 months old. It started out very small, and grew to the size in the photos. Eventually he started scratching at it, and it would bleed. The vet removed it with a laser, it took about 3 seconds. It healed without a problem, and didn't come back. He does have a little scar, a small patch that doesn't grow fur, where it used to be.

    here's a pic of the histiocytoma. It's been the same size for two months and now it's slowly (very) getting smaller... I just passed antibiotic ointment on it...
