Ear Tumors - McDowell's Herbal Treatments


Ear tumors are growths associated with the ear. The most common include squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma and basal cell tumor.

Depending on the tumor type there may or may not be an underlying cause. Chronic inflammation may predispose to tumor formation and prolonged sunlight exposure may predispose certain tumors.

Adenocarcinoma tumors are seen most commonly in middle-aged to older cats with light colored fur or skin and occurs after exposure to sunlight while Basal cell tumor s generally affect middle aged to older cats and are most common in Siamese cats.

Early in the illness, many cats have no clinical signs, and tumors are often incidental findings.


  • Look for Skin changes on the ear. Crusts, ulcers or excessive growth of tissue
  • Bleeding, Odour, Discharge, nodular growths.
  • Poor Balance

I recommend supporting your cat's immunity and recovery by using both the melanoma mixes plus the Maritime Pine Bark Antioxidant.
