Hi guys today I will be checking on lung cancer in cats of which I was researching on:                                 

                                    Lung cancer in cats                                           

            Lung cancer is not common to cats as it is to dogs.But it is more fatal when it occurs in cats.                                                                                                                                 Symptoms of lung cancer in cats

The symptoms of lung cancer may depend on where the cancer originated though most of them are related to respiratory system.


2.Difficult in breathing.

3.Rapid breathing.

4.Poor appetite.

5.Fever in some patients.

6.Coughing up blood.

7.Weight loss.

8.Low energy level.

                         Causes of lung cancer in lung cancer.

  • Suspected risk factors include living in an urban environment and passive cigarette smoking, but not proven.
  • Exposure to cigarette smoke
  • Environmental cancer producing chemicals
  • Retroviruses

                                Diagnosis of lung cancer in cats

The veterinary will perform a complete physical examination of your cat and obtain a medical history from you including onset and type of symptoms.It will be necessary to perform tests to determine if your cat has cancer, the type, and location.Baseline tests may include:1.X-ray                                                                                                                                  2.Magnetic resonance imaging.                                                                                      3.Fine needle aspirate.                                                                                                      4.Surgical biopsy.

That's was my research for now  but will check on the remaining  part in my next post.

I loved your research, it was well organized and informative! I had no idea that lung cancer was less common in cats than it is in dogs, and it really made me interested in your topic. I thought that you might want to add the potential treatements in your next post, so I looked it up and found a great website that you can use. It explains that when a cat has cancer, there are only three options: surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. The article goes in depth and explains exactly what each of the three options are, and I think it would be very useful for your next post! https://pethelpful.com/cats/tr...hemotherapy-for-cats

In the future, I would suggest to avoid putting writing in yellow because it makes it a bit hard to read.

I loved your post, and I can't wait to read more of your work in the future!

Hey Roba!

Great post on lung cancer in animals! I think it's a great idea that you decided to split each round based on an animal because it really makes your research easy to read and understand above. Like Jasmine mentioned above, learning about the different treatment options available might be interesting to include - especially if you were able to compare it to human treatment methods!

Great job and good luck!

Hi Roba,

I really enjoyed reading your round of research. This is such an interesting field of study and I hope you continue on with it (maybe researching cancer in larger animals? Exotic animals? Animals found in captivity? How would they compare?). I think it's kind of frustrating yet quite baffling that these problems, i.e. lung cancer in cats, is greatly caused by humans, whether it be through smoking of cigarettes, urban development, etc. So another aspect of your research could be to look further into the impact of humans on animal health, or more specifically, animal oncology, if that's what you are interested in.

Otherwise, your research was very intriguing and clear, which was great!! Keep up the great work, and here are some links to help with further research:
