So we took some cells from the mass and sent them to the lab. Good news is it wasn’t filled with blood which the vet thought it could’ve been an aneurysm or a hematoma. Lab results came back saying there are spindle cells present. Which means it’s either an infected abscess or spindle cell tumor. Chester is going under anesthesia tomorrow and they’re gonna open it up and send it out to a specialist to test it. Wish him good luck!
So Chester has developed this hard lump on his left side of beard the last few days. The right side totally normal. Luckily I work at a veterinary hospital and we do have one doctor on staff who used to see reptiles. I’ve been texting her tonight and she thinks it’s possibly an abscess that’s gotten infected or a rot issue. He’s a little over a year and hasn’t had any health concerns in the past.
Anybody know any info on this or has had their beardie go through anything similar?
Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated.
