I had posted earlier about Simba's condition with his ear. My vet had originally thought it was a cancerous tumor, but I found out this weekend he has what is called a "Fungal Granuloma". Has anybody ever heard of this? I'm the queen of online research, but am having trouble finding much information on this. I have found alot on humans that have had it, but cannot find anything on cats. I should find out later this week the course of action to treat this. The vet/dermatologist are currently trying to figure out what type of organism it is by doing a stain/culture. He is a carrier of ringworm and has battled it off and on for many years. I just know in my gut that's what it is... I'm thinking he will need to be on some type of oral anti-fungal, but still not certain. I'm really concerned since it is in his ear, down close to his ear drum, that it could possibly spread to other organs. I've dealt with fungus externally (skin), but never internally.
