Cancers (malignant tumours) affecting the liver and/or pancreas are fortunately not very common in cats.
These tumours can cause jaundice (due to obstruction to the flow of bile), depression, weight loss, vomiting and distension of the abdomen (either due to the tumour or due to accumulation of fluid in the abdomen).
The prognosis for these tumours is very poor with little response being seen to current treatments.
Cats may also be affected with benign tumours of the liver or pancreas which may not necessarily cause any significant clinical signs of illness.
