Landry’s mass has been present for a long time. It had gotten to a point that it was opening and leaking. The only way to resolve the mass was to remove it. It was a skin mass likely an overactive gland issue. If not removed I always worry about infection and parasites (like maggots) inhabiting it. Best to remove it while it’s small and not bothering him.
Skin Mass lateral thorax area.
Landry did very well during his surgery. He woke up quickly and without any complications. Once it was removed it was cut in half and it was found to be just an enlarged cyst.
