Throat Cancer in Cats



A tumor in a cats throat, also referred to as a chondrosarcoma, can affect the larynx and trachea in a cat’s throat. Symptoms include but are not limited to harsh or noisy breathing patterns, lack of stamina, sudden collapse and an inability to swallow or ingest food.


Diagnosis can be done through several methods including radiographic studies, MRI and CT scans. In many cases a biopsy may be needed to diagnose throat cancer in cats. Surgery to remove the tumor is necessary. Radiotherapy is generally not effective for cats with a chondrosarcoma tumor.

Cost to Treat: $2,500 to $20,000. Malignant throat tumors in cats are extremely expensive to treat. Diagnostic testing and surgery can cost thousands of dollars. A pet insurance policy can help pay for veterinary diagnosis and care when your cat or kitten gets sick.
