"For years I had been a "junkie"--addicted to prescription and over the counter drugs. used oral and topical anti-inflammatory corticosteroids for 9 years to suppress my eczema/psoriasis. The steroids' side effect nearly killed me and did nothing to cure my eczema. Why elimination or suppression of the symptom is NOT the same as elimination of the disease . The side effects caused me to swell-up like a balloon and triggered terrible mood swings from deep depression to nasty outburst our rages. Functioning of vital organs such as my liver, kidneys, lungs and spleen were nearly shut down and I thought I would die." Shirley
Fibrosarcoma is an aggressive and highly invasive type of cancer that originates in fibrous connective tissue. In cats, it is often associated with the feline leukemia virus, the feline immunodeficiency virus or administration of vaccines. Fibrosarcomas tend to occur as solitary skin masses on the head, in the mouth, on the trunk or on the legs. There is some association between certain inactivated feline vaccines and development of fibrosarcomas at the injection site. However, the potential for vaccine-associated reactions shouldn’t deter owners from vaccinating their cats. Surgical removal of fibrosarcomas is often possible. However, without wide clean surgical margins, these tumors often recur.
