Vet found a hard mass in our dog's anal gland...

Elderly cat with lump on inner cheek inside mouth

I've got a 14-year-old male indoor cat with a large lump inside his mouth, on his cheek. He doesn't seem to notice or care much—he's been eating/drinking and behaving normally (alpha male).

Brain Tumor Blogs

I have been diagnosed with stage 2 glioma/astrocytoma (brain cancer). I would love to find some good blogs from people who have gone through the treatment and experience of brain cancer, but I've been having trouble with the search. Links would be much appreciated!

Could you get cancer by eating a cancerous tumour?

Not that any human would ever do this, but what would happen if someone ate a cancerous tumor? Like, if they waited around a surgical room, and it was removed from someone's breast, or pancreas. Would the stomach acids kill it? Could the person get cancer by eating it?
