Ceruminous Gland Tumors
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.
Ceruminous gland tumors may become infected and bleed.
Diagnosis is made by veterinarian ear examination.
Surgical removal is the treatment of choice. Surgery, combined with radiation therapy, is recommended for invasive tumors.
There is no known prevention for this condition.
Please contact your veterinarian if you suspect your pet may have this condition.
