    MY TURTLE HAS CANCER!!...or something

    There are these two identical mounds on either side of my turtle, Dooney's head, can annnnybody tell me what that might be?

    Oh yeah, It's a red-eared slider.

    Some breeds of turtles do have bumps on their heads. However not my area of experience...I'd definitely take Dooney to the vet...and if they think it's cancerous they can do a surgical biopsy or fine needle aspiration (FNA) for you. About the best I can offer...sorry, but I definitely wish you and Dooney the best of luck and prayer.

    My turtle had the same thing but on one side.
    I took her to the vet, and she needed an operation.
    Is it hard?

    Better seek medical attention before it's too late. It helps to be more cautious sometimes especially if it involves them- our beloved pets
