Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me. I have a cat named pete he is nearly 11 years old after he continued to lose about 3 months ago I found a lump on his neck which was in his lympth node this was removed and tests carried out, it was confirmed he has fibrosarcoma, 3 months on I've now found another 2 lumps in the same place i've taken him to the vets and they have started him on steriods, as they didn't think surgery would benefit him. I've not been able to find a lot on the internet about fibrosarcoma can any body help me to understand exactly how aggresive this cancer is. Also how much of a longer lifespan will the steriods give him.
