Question: I have a 2-year-old cat that has been diagnosed with lymphosarcoma of the eye. I do not understand how a cat that is this young could have cancer. Also, is it common for a cat to have cancer in the eye? The entire situation seems so unusual and I am heartbroken about the diagnosis.
Answer: First, I am sorry to hear that your young cat has been diagnosed with cancer. Unfortunately, we do see cancer in young patients and it is always difficult because it is unexpected. Also, cancer in our younger patients can progress very quickly without warning, so the diagnosis is often difficult to understand.
