This day course aims to help you develop a logical approach to superficial lumps and bumps on your patient - whether these are the primary reason for the owner seeking your advice, or whether these have been detected incidentally. You will appreciate the importance of examination of the mass and of the whole patient. You will become confident in selecting the most useful and appropriate diagnostic tests in order to reach a definitive diagnosis, and understand when a specialist opinion may be useful. The course will aim to develop your knowledge of appropriate treatment options so that you are comfortable discussing these with your clients.
