Condition Overview

These tumors arise from wax-producing glands in the ear canal. They are pinkish-white dome shaped growths, less than 1cm across. Most are pedunculated (on a stalk), with the base attached to the wall of the ear canal. The length of the stalk allows the tumor to extend outward and become visible.

Symptoms

Ceruminous gland tumors may become infected and bleed.

Causes

Information needed.

Diagnosis

Diagnosis is made by veterinarian ear examination.

Treatment

Surgical removal is the treatment of choice. Surgery, combined with radiation therapy, is recommended for invasive tumors.

Prevention

There is no known prevention for this condition.

Support

Please contact your veterinarian if you suspect your pet may have this condition.
