Good Day!! My young golden girl, Madison (5 years old) was diagnoised with a histiocytoma. I was given a cortizone cream to try for 7-10 days and if not shrinking she will have to have it removed. Upon reseraching histio, I see most are benign, does anyone have experience dealing with these? I got a pic of when we first noticed it and 3 days later, it looks worse today than what it did when we first found it.
Thank you golden friends!!
feel free to email as well, I check that regularily, although I should come back her more often there is WONDERFUL information here!!
Thanks again,
Kat in Ohio

Histiocytomas are benign.. but they can also look like the malignant mast cell tumor in appearance. I usually tell clients that it can take up to one month to resolve. However, if it gets bigger or changes, it should come off sooner rather than later...
