Background: This is the most common tumor of horses. It is a very low-grade vegetative growth and may arise from a viral source. They often appear in a site after a wound has healed.
Symptoms: Generally dry with a smooth or rough surfaced. However, can be aggressive and bloody. Most often found on the face, head and neck.
Diagnostics: Diagnosed properly by histopathology, though in most cases the characteristic lesion is clearly identifiable.
Special Notes: Natural treatment can also be directed at aiding the immune system; however, it is indirect therapy, and will not cure the problem. The tumors do not usually regress on their own, though treatment with homeopathy can help.
Principles for Supplementation: Support the immune system.
