What Is Mass Removal?
Many pets will develop lumps and bumps sometime during their lifespan. While some are harmless, others are masses or tumors that necessitate surgical removal. The team at Pet Method offers diagnostic testing to determine the size and scope of the mass and see whether it is benign or cancerous. If your cat or dog needs mass removal surgery, the procedure can be done right here at our vet clinic in McKinney, TX. Dr. Hunter Finn will work to make the surgical experience as smooth as possible for you and your pet. Throughout the treatment process, he works to alleviate any fear or anxiety that may be caused by visiting the vet.

What to Expect with Mass Removal
During your initial visit to Pet Method, Dr. Finn will perform a thorough exam to assess the size and placement of the mass. Usually, a biopsy is done by taking a sample of tissue in order to discover whether it is cancerous or benign. It's worth noting that not all tumors require removal. Dr. Finn will discuss all of your options and inform you of any risks to help you make an informed decision regarding your pet. If lump removal surgery is necessary, your pet will be placed under general anesthesia. The procedure itself is fairly simple. Dr. Finn will create an incision in the selected area, followed by extracting the mass and then closing the area with sutures. After the procedure, detailed follow-up instructions will be provided by our staff to ensure proper healing.

Mass Removal FAQs
There are several reasons why your pet may have a mass (or lump). These can include an abscess or infection, a growth (cyst), a foreign object in the body (granuloma), or a tumor.
Not necessarily. Many masses, bumps, and lumps your fur buddy may have are benign, or harmless. However, sometimes it can be a cancerous tumor. That’s why Pet Method provides diagnostic testing to determine the cause of your pet’s mass so you can give your best friend the treatment they need to stay healthy and happy.
Not always. Dr. Finn will perform an exam and biopsy to determine if your pet’s lump needs to be removed or if other treatment options would be better for their health.
No, it won’t. Dr. Finn performs all mass removals with general anesthesia, meaning your little (or big) guy will be completely asleep and feel no pain. During the recovery period, they may have some soreness and tenderness, but this is normal, and there are options to help keep them comfortable as they heal.
