Talking Sarcoids

Hey everyone,

Just wanting a bit of help with sarcoids...
My horse has previously had 2 sarcoids and I have had the vet out twice to have them treated but I was just woundering if there was anything else I can do and what sarcoids are exactly?
I've heard that they are a type of caner is this correct?
And also will my horse have these all his life, now that he has had them twice?

Thanks guys,

Usually the typical way to treat sarcoids is to remove them surgically and the vet has to go deep enough to remove the whole tumor.Or a vet can burn them off, but again it has to go deep enough to take the whole tumor. If even a small portion is left behind, the cells get "angry" and return with a vengence.
Sarcoids are a form of benign skin tumors.
