While cancer is not as prevalent in horses as it is in humans, cancers of the skin are fairly common in
horses and most of them are easy to spot. We will be discussing the most common skin tumors in
horses - sarcoids, squamous cell carcinomas and melanomas - in horses and discuss how (surgical)
treatment is applied and what you can expect following treatment.

In 2023, the Equine Medical Center will host a hybrid “Tuesday Talks” Program. Guests are welcome to attend each evening presentation here at the Center or may join remotely via a webinar link.
Each presentation starts at 7 p.m. (EST) and will be about one hour long. Guests will be given the opportunity to ask questions after each presentation. There is no charge to attend these webinars, but we ask that you consider supporting our Good Samaritan Fund. This compassionate fund provides financial assistance to owners of horses and other equines who are unable to financially support the treatment of serious and/or life- threatening conditions, when a successful outcome and good quality of life are likely.
