http://www.familyvet.com/Cats/Cancer.html I googled feline leg adenoma and got this page. Lots here. Some of it scary (my Frankie ~FeLv_ ~ has chin lumps and one was diagnosed as mast cell tumor) but it sounds like adenomas are not malignant. Prayers for you both. Please post what you find out.

Hi, Have you had bloodwork done on Mickey lately to make sure that he's not anemic and to make sure there's not something else going on? I would suggest that you have your vet do a small biopsy of the growth to get an exact diagnosis and to rule out cancer. I think adenomas are common in older

What shot are you taking him in for? Please be careful if it is a steroid injection. Injections put more medication into a cat than the cat can process and if the cat has a bad reaction to steroids, there is no way to cut back like you can with pills. My Cooper had a bad reaction to his first

One of my cats had a huge growth on her lip and five or six different vets misdiagnosed it. We gave her all kinds of medicines. Finally, I found a vet who knew exactly what it was and it was cleared up within a week. The same cat has lymphoma and it took over a year to get a correct diagnosis.
