Re: Corn Snake Has Hard Lump

Finally got her test results back.

I ended up doing an ultrasound guided aspiration and sent the sample off for biopsy. Spent more money than I wanted to, but whatever. I wanted to follow this through for my old friend.

It's cancer, probably a sarcoma. I'm thinking for sure what I want to do, but am leaning towards euthanasia. The tumor is HUGE and growing and surely must have metastasized by now. I don't think treating it would be worth it.

They weren't able to tell me which organ is started in. They think probably intestines, but could be muscle or connective tissue as well.

I feel like at this point euthanasia is probably in the best interest of the snake. She's losing weight like crazy and will not eat.
