Mammary neoplasia in the guinea pig (Cavia porcellus)



Mammary neoplasia in the guinea pig (Cavia porcellus)



Cornell Veterinarian 66(1): 82-96



The popular belief that neoplasia rarely occurs in guinea-pigs is true only for young populations - for example, experimental colonies where the turnover is rapid. Pulmonary adenoma and mammary adenocarcinoma are common in aged guinea-pigs. The prevalence of mammary tumours is similar in the two sexes. Four case histories of mammary tumours are described and, in one of the four, metastases were present in the lungs.
