Draft Gelding With Swollen Penis

Hi Dr. Bentz, last July(08) our 22 y/o Belgian draft gelding developed an issue where he could not urinate on his own. He had a lot of sediment and appeared to have an infection so he was put on tocoprim for two weeks and methionine for about two months to help increase his PH and break up the crystals. Since then we have been cathing him twice a day. Although we were trying to figure ...

I am a 22 year old male and I was diagnosed with an enchondroma in my right femur 4 months ago that is very painful(pain has been there for 8 months) and required crutches for 2 months, now I use a cane.

Tumor Of Mandible

Dr. Teig, I have recently been diagnosed with a large tumor of the mandible.  I am scheduled for a biopsy this week and am pretty terrified of the surgical procedure to follow.  I am seeing a maxilofacial surgeon and to quote him, "The tumor is so large, if it were cancer, you would be dead.  "It(the tumor) has completely engulfed the mandible".  I haven't spoke with him since the initial visit and am very concerned ...

Bone Cancer In Joints

My dwarf rabbit has a swollen hind leg joint and was not walking on it, so I took her to the vet to get it checked out. They took x-rays and the vet says it looks like bone cancer, but we would have to do a biopsy to be sure. The biopsy is pretty expensive and can be inconclusive, and they may not do anything differently as far as treatment goes if we find out ...

Single Tori On Lower Jaw, Cheek Side

I have one small tori on the lower jaw, on the cheek side(next to last molar). The oral surgeon wants to remove it/biopsy. I'm scared to death he suspects cancer. Then again, I don't want to go through an unnecessary surgery if it likely isn't.(No insurance and scared of needles, etc.)

I've read tori are not precancerous, but I've also read that if they're in an unusual place(as this is) they should be biopsied. ...

Bone Graft Failure?

I am having some of the same issues as a post from Wendy and I am afraid that my bone graft on tooth #14 is failing.

I had a second treatment in Jan 2009 on a root canal that was completed in my teenage years. Since the 2nd treatment, I have had severe issues all year. I had a temporary crown placed after the treatment, I had that on for about 2 months(with no ...
