Mars' lump stopped contracting, so we pretty much decided to have our regular vet remove it. First we wanted to get a second opinion. We went to a branch of Cornell Vet school near us and got bad news. Based on the surgeon's experience and the physical characteristics of the lump (NOT the negative biopsy), she thinks it is likely to be a sarcoma but won't commit to what kind.

Next Thursday we're going back for a big CT scan and a surgical biopsy. I'll let you know what we learn.
